Buca castle

by Discover Montenegro
The Buca castle in Tivat.

It is a fortified summer residence unique at the Montenegrin coast. It was built more than 500 years ago. The founder of the family Mihajlo Buca and his brother Nikola, who served at czar Dusan’s court, built a medieval castle -summer residence for both rest and defense.

It consists of five buildings: residence house, storehouse, a small church dedicated to St Michael, who was the protector-patron of the noble Buca family from Kotor and porch- multipurpose colonnaded entrance way. All the buildings were enclosed by stone wall like all medieval buildings.

It has been revitalized and today it houses the Tivat Art Gallery.
