Did you know that Trogir is the best-preserved Romanesque-Gothic complex, not only in the Adriatic, but throughout the whole of central Europe? From Renaissance to Baroque to Venetian, be it palaces, churches and towers, the architecture in Trogir essentially has every period covered. The historical centre of the city has been superbly preserved with numerous sacred buildings dating back to the 13th century. Splendid architectural buildings include: Cipiko Palace, the church of St. Peter, St. Dominic Monastery and the Benedictine Monastery of St. Nicolas.
A simple stop during your catamaran charter in Trogir, you don’t even need a tour guide to explore this historical hub. Take a few moments to wander around the site and admire the countryside. During summer, the castle is often used as a space where plays are performed, and it also hosts the Moondance festival during the month of August. Built in the 15th century by the Venetians, the fortress offers extraordinary views over the south-west waters of the island and of the historical town itself with colourful rooftops and ancient towers. If you need a pitstop, sip a coffee with an equally spectacular panoramic view in St Mark’s Tower, a stone’s throw away from the Kamerlengo fortress.
