Today in Herceg Novi you can find a lot of signs from the past. One of the significant mileston is fortress Forte Mare where you can start your tour. Cache itself is very close, just the nearby of the church of St. Leopold Mandic.

Saint Leopold- Bogdan Mandić was born on May 12, 1866 in Castelnuovo di Cattaro, today Herceg Novi. Physically malformed and delicate, having a height of only 1.35m, with clumsy walk and stuttering, he developed tremendous spiritual strength. His feast is celebrated May 12. He spent his whole life as a priest. On July 30, 1942, while preparing for the liturgy, he collapsed on the floor. He was then brought to his cell, where he was given the last rites.Nurs that had gathered at his bed began singing the Salve Regina and saw that Leopold died as they sang "O clement, O loving, O sweet Virgin Mary." As a result of the bombing during WW II, the church and part of the friary where Leopold lived were demolished, but Leopold's cell and confessional were left unharmed. Leopold had predicted this before his death, saying, "The church and the friary will be hit by the bombs, but not this little cell. Here God exercised so much mercy for people, it must remain as a monument to God's goodness." Paul VI beatified Leopold on May 2, 1976. He was canonized by John Paul II on October 16, 1983. Leopold is hailed as the "Apostle of Unity".
