When you approach by sea, this fortress built by the Venetians in the 15th century stands as a lighthouse, announcing the town laying besides it.
When you arrive, it "sits" discreetly in the back, composing the beautiful look of the Riva. Very nice from all the angles!
Like almost all cities in Croatia, the old town is a pleasant mix of classified buildings and commercial locations, turning the walk around in a constant stop and go, to see a detail, to buy something, or just have a drink or ice cream.
No time to get bored or tired!
The sea front is a pleasant walkway, with esplanades, and relaxing places in the shade. Some stalls with local products align discreetly in the back, giving life to the place.
Please don't ask me about prices...
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.
Kamerlengo (Gradina Kamerlengo) is a castle and fortress in Trogir. It was built by the Republic of Venice.
The castle was built in the mid-15th century by Marin Radoj as part of an expansion of the Veriga Tower, built on the site in the late 14th century. It is used as a location for performances during the summer months. The word kamerlengo or camerlengo refers to the title of an administrative official (a chamberlain).
The Romansque cathedral of St Lawrence with Gothic and Renaissance parts is the most significant landmark in Trogir. Trogir cathedral is the most archaic example in the construction of interior arcades in Dalmatia with heavy elongated piers separating the two Gothic-ribbed aisles from the nave, vaulted later also in Gothic style in the 15th century, three semi-circular apses and a vaulted interior above which rises the Campanile.
Trogir old town is a delightful place to wander round during the day. But those visiting just for a day miss the pleasure of the alleys and lanes - sights like the cathedral looks good as well - after dark. And when you're tired of soaking up the atmosphere on foot, there are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars where you can do the same thing sitting down!
This church is from the 14th century and still in good shape. It is right behind the clock tower. It used to be a Benedictine monastery and contains some frescoes inside and the tomb of some Cipiko family, the protector family of 300 years.
There is the land side gate called Kopnena Vrata is the main entry since Venetian control in the 15th century. It has a statue of St. John on the top portion, as well as a stone carving of the Venetian lion symbol underneath it. It was rebuilt in the 17th century and even back then had a draw bridge over the moat/canal.
The Sea gate is on the Riva side and entry is by stores through to the gate entry. It was built in the 16th century
This is a mix of a church and fort that were the outer walls of defense for centuries. The church is a Benedictine/convent monastery and still in active use. The church was built in the 14th century and after some attacks, it also added the fortress compound. The church is open 9-12 and 3-7.
It is named after a Venetian called Kamerlin, who helped handle the area finances. It has an octagon tower and the layout is quadrilateral. It is a nine sided fortress and was strengthened by Venetians in 1500's to defend mostly against Turk attacks here. It was to defend the water side entry into the canal, or any intruders from water side. There used to be a wall alongside the water edge, but Austrians took a lot down in 1800's, but some still remains with intertwined into the buildings along the Riva.
St Marks round tower was to defend against any attacks to the canal side, and the bridges could be part of the city defense also, and well protected. It was built around mid 1400's.
The entry fee is 20 kuna, or $4, and not worth the inside view of bare walls unless you want to go to the top for a panorama of the Riva.
This is about a long two block long corridor that runs the length of the water's edge. It is called Obala Obama Slavica, and has some of the more elegant structures and sites besides the boats docked alongside the harbor area. A number of the docked boats are for one day or more excursions onto other nearby islands, or special tours coming form as far as Dubrovnik or Riejka. They are smaller boats and may hold around 15-20 people for a fun on board time.
