The Savina Monastery was built by the Duke of Saint Sava near the city of Herceg Novi, which is in one of the most scenic spots on Montenegro's coastline, a spot lush with vegetation and views. There are three religious buildings making up the monastery complex, the largest is a Cathedral of the Assumption, but the oldest is a tiny church of the Assumption, which is supposed to date from 1030, but the dates of the buildings are very contested. The buildings are special but the real jewels of the monastery are the treasures – valuable and oft bejewelled relics collected from other monasteries in the area.
