St Cross Fortress (Perast-Montenegro)
St Cross fortress was erected about 250 meters from the center of Perast, but is located on a hill called Kasun. It was named after the olde church of St Cross that was raised at this location in the 9th century. It is assumed that the church could bear a different name because the cult of the St Cross in Perast is connected to the keeping of the Venetian war flag with the cross and the lion of St Mark. According to the records of the fortress municipality, the church was founded in 1570 to provide shelter for the inhabitants of Perast if needed, because Perast was surrounded from all sides by the Turkish territory and lacked fortresses that could protect the people. Today, the fort is in a ruinous condition and is located above the main road so You can easily spot it.
