Along the Trogir Channel side and particularly along the northern channel side of Trogir's Old Town, you'll see hundreds of boats. It's like a big boat parking lot. Some of them are simple fishing vessels and others are true pleasure crafts. With so many amazing islands and villages along the Adriatic coast, it's not a bad place to go for a sail.
The historical centre of Trogir
Trogir is a remarkable example of urban continuity. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers with many fine public and domestic buildings and fortifications. Its beautiful Romanesque churches are complemented by the outstanding Renaissance and Baroque buildings from the Venetian period.
Because of the above, the historical centre of the city found its place among other world monuments of culture under the protection of UNESCO.
The church/monastery complex is located on the Riva-which is called Obala Bana Berislavica. The church and complex was built over the 14th-15th centuries. It is still an active monastery today, even though not as active as in the past. Inside are the coffins of Simun and Ivan Sobota. The courtyard is peaceful and serene for a nice visit.
The church is open for visiting and they also have a small treasury (not worth much time to spend there) for a fee of 10 kuna. They do not have entry to the bell tower.
Who might explain this bas-relief?
In a side street, on top of an entrance, this bas-relief looks strange. It is decorated by freshly collected branches. On the left, a bearded man in a Middle Ages outfit walks over the Sea and holds a large sword as if it was a fold umbrella. On the right, a bare faced man in the same outfit, but with a huge left hand, holds a sword as if it was a stick. I have been unable to give an interpretation of the carving in the middle. There seems to be a pea-cock, a rolled document but there must be something else ?
