sankt Cathrin

This is a single-nave church with a small bell-tower [...]. the church is Orthodox today[...].
 Since the church is situated on one of the most prominent locations in Bar, on a little crossroads square, and since its foundation shape is rather archaic, it is possible that this used to be St. Peter's Church.

(ZAGARCANIN Mladen, "STARI GRAD BAR - THE OLD TOWN OF BAR". "A GUIDE THROUGH THE CENTURIES")

The church of St. Peter ("Sancti Petri de Antivari") was mentioned on 12 May 1247, when the gathering of the count, the "elders" and the "people" of Antivari was held in front of it. It was one of three Collegiate churches of the town.
