Roman Catholic Diocese of Risano

The Roman Catholic Diocese of Risan(o) or Risinio (Latin Risinium) was a Latin Catholic bishopric from the sixth to the 17th century and is now a Latin titular see.

It was suppressed circa 1630, its territory being merged into the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kotor (Cattaro), also in Montenegro.
