Muzej grada Trogira Muzej grada Trogira
Muzej grada Trogira, the museum of the city of Trogir stands in the baroque style Garagnin-Fanfogna palace. It is open from 8AM to 2PM. The entrance costs 10 Kn. It shows furniture and various artifacts from the 17th and 18th that were collected in local homes.
In the background, the tower of the Cathedral.
Just across from the pictured town market, the most famous landmark of Trogir appears. Small as it may be, the North town Gate, "porta terrae fermae", is the late-renaissance main town entrance gate that is connected to the new town with a small stone bridge. On the top of the gate is the patron of the Town - St. John, guarding its citizens.
Sveti Duje : blessed Augustin Kazotiċ
The first photo represents a statue standing by the side of Sveti Duje with the following carving "Bl. Augustin Kazotiċ, Trogir, 1260. Lucera 3-VIII-1923. Dominikanac biskup Zagrebački I Lucerski prvi Hrvatski blazenik. Nasemu gradu daruje 3/VIII 2001 drusino Trogir na I prijatelia grada Trogira u Zagrebu" (enlarging on the second photo).
Three different dates ! I had to understand what it was all about ! I found that I had to read Lucera 3-VIII-1323 and not Lucera 3-VIII-1923. That made more sense : born in Trogir, died in Lucera. Finally, here is what I have learnt about Augustin Kazotiċ
Augustin Kazotiċ (1260-1323) was born in Trogir. He studied at the University of Paris (Sorbonne) by the end of the 13th century. He was reputed to be "an excellent orator and brilliant diplomat" not only in Croatia, but also in France and Italy. He was a Dominican. When he was the bishop of Zagreb, he founded the important Library of Metropolitana in Zagreb, existing continuously from 13th century to these days. He stayed 4 years in Avignon at the Pope's court and was sent by the pope as a bishop in Lucera (southern Italy), where he was soon slaughtered by a fanatic Saracen. He was the first Croat to be beatified in 1702.
Another lovely medieval town--OK, we give up!
Trogir, located about a half-hour's drive from Split, is another perfectly preserved medieval stone town on the Croatian coast. It's small and can be filled with tourists, but we had a pleasant enough time walking around. This was the last medieval town we stopped at in Croatia, and after this, we'd had enough. They all start to run together after a while!
