Church of St. Rocco is located on the highest hill in Trpanj, which offers a view of the whole village and the open sea. The church was built in the late 16th century as a votive church. St. Roch or Rocco is a saint of the Roman Catholic Church who lived in 14th century France and contracted the plague twice. He is revered as a protector against plague and infectious diseases in general. In the 19th century, the church underwent alterations. A monumental staircase, built in 1927, leads to the church. The second and smaller steps lead to the church of St. Nicholas on the other hill.

We were surprised by the skills of the painters, it was a great feeling looking at the paintings within the altar. St Rocco has numerous statues, i especially loved their arrangement. The art in the church surpassed my imagination and made me appreciate artwork more. The view from the hill was panoramic, we could see the village and the sea very clearly. Will definitely come back

Located on a hill, this church is a must visit. I really loved trekking to the top. It offers a great view of the sea and land. The stairs are magnificent. This votive church is quite small but the architectural design still stands out considering it was built in the 16th century.

My tour at the Church of Saint Rocco was amazing and i was perplexed by the rich historical story of the place. I loved the superb views of the landscape and the sea from the church that is located uphill. The art work of the church is mindblowing and would stare at the amazing piece of work for hour on the walls and other paintings. The architectural structure of the church of saint Rocco is beautiful and eye catching. Peaceful place with conducive environment to visit and i recommend a visit to the place.

We visited the church and a sign outside the place told about the medieval history of the church and there was a wonderful musician playing live. Unforgettable moments.
