Wow. The history behind this church is I the walls with its paintings and carvings. The alter is beautiful. Make sure you have a guide as it is worth finding out the history behind the church

The Church of Blazena Ozana is dedicated to the blessed Ozana. She was a nun that helped the Kotor's inhabitants to fight against the Turks in the XVI century.
The church have a very nice bronze doorway and in the interior the frescos shown the life of the blessed Ozana.

This small church sits on the site of a church which dates to the 500 AD era. The present church dates to about mid 1200's. The frescoes are Greek and estimates put the paintings at about the 14th century. It is a treat to see them, or what remains of them.

The glass coffin contains the remains of a very special saint (1493-1565) who started life as a sheep herder and household domestic. At age 22, she answered the call and became a nun. She chose to be walled into a small cell attached to a church so as to devote her life to prayer.

Her prayers for peace, people, and the community of Kotor are said to have been answered when an Ottoman invasion was thwarted during her lifetime.

No simple feat, she is in line for canonization as a true saint.

The docent at the church made this all the more meaningful. Pictures are allowed. The fragile nun wears a mask but her hand bones, turned brown with age, still clasp her rosary.

Old Town Kotor is a great place to visit and this church is just one of the reasons why. We enjoyed exploring it on our own.
