Travel Tips for Trogir
View from the island of Ciovo
The view at the southern part of the city defending walls built by Venetians in 13 - 15 centuries. Most of the city walls were destroyed in the 17th century during the attaks of Turks.
In the central position of the picture there is the defending tower of Vitturi, one of the two very well preserved towers.
St. Lovre-St. Lawrence Treasury
This is not much of a collection, but you do not know the extent until getting inside. The artifact collection is small and the only main feature is carved inlaid storage cabinets, a reliquary of St. John of Trogir, and a jug from the 14th century. Entry is 10 kuna, so not bad for the 5 minute view.
City clock tower
The city clock tower stands on Trg Ivana Pavla II (Square John Paul II), formerly Narodni Trg (National Square), between the city Loggia and the little church of Saint Barbara (Crvca Sveti Barbara). The city clock tower is all what remains of the small church of Saint Sebastian (Crvca Sveti Sebastijan), built in 1422 to thank Saint Sebastian for allegedly protecting the city from the plague.
Over the entrance into the tower, the statues of the Christ (on top) and of Saint Sebastian (underneath) are from Niccolo Fiorentino (Nicholas of Florence) [third photo]. The later is considered as one of his best sculptures.
Crkva Sveti Petar.
At the end of a narrow passage, Crkva Sveti Petar (Church of saint Peter) appears. I have found it had been built in the 13th century as the chapel of Sveti Petar convent. It is hidden in a part of the old city where few visitors stroll along. If we had walk faster in front of that narrow alley, we would have missed it. Where is it exactly ? I am unable to say but as Trogir old city core is not that big, stroll around and you will find it !
I visited Trogir on a day trip from nearby Split and enjoyed every calming, breezy moment of my short stay. The main sights are all centered in the medieval center, which is really an island sandwiched between the mainland and the island of Ciovo. You could literally walk the perimeter of the Old Town in a half hour, but Trogir is the type of place that is best seen at a leisurely pace. I arrived from Split in the late morning and after getting my bearings by walking along the waterfront promenade and enjoying a slow meal, I spent the rest of the afternoon just wandering the narrow streets trying to be observant of every crooked stone and timeworn shutter. Take your time and make it your goal to relax and allow the atmosphere to be soothing and not rushed. There is not one single sight here that is utterly overwhelming, but taken as a whole, the town with all its beige stone charm is picturesque and truly satisfying to visit.
