Coordinates N42 28 59.988 E18 41 60
Date of Inscription 1979

Brief Description (http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/125 )

In the Middle Ages, this natural harbour on the Adriatic coast in Montenegro was an important artistic and commercial centre with its own famous schools of masonry and iconography. A large number of the monuments (including four Romanesque churches and the town walls) were seriously damaged by the 1979 earthquake but the town has been restored, largely with UNESCO's help.
