The Church of Our Lady of Remedy (Serbian Cyrillic: Црква Госпе од здравља or Црква Марије Колеђате) is an Roman Catholic church located in Kotor, Montenegro. The church is perched on the slope of the St. John Mountain. The Church of Our Lady of Remedy dates from 1518. The church can only be reached on foot: the rocks and the stairs that lead to the structures on the slope make this church a difficult and time-consuming place to reach. Nevertheless, many tourists and local citizens visit this church daily. It can be seen from a long distance.
