    Charming building, impressive and well preserved that is at the end of the seafront promenade in Trogir. Nice to climb the towers and watch the sunset and the magnificent boats moored

    The building is located on the seafront of Trogir and is impossible to miss. Externally the building is well maintained and is "empty" inside (entering you can walk on walls).

    Small strong small and well preserved. The views from the tower are well without being spectacular. Visit essential in Trogir.

    Nice little fort. Provides a really good view of Trogir from the very and top and the lower level walls. There isn't much to see in the fort, in fact there's nothing, but the view is worth it. People have complained about the entry price but it works out at less than £3 a person and we pay more for less in the UK.

    That's quite comprehensive why this fortress was built on the corner as a solid base at this small island. Like most of fortress form - square mass. Today it is surrounded by several business stands and become a market place. How wonder the history can be changed by human!

    A great fortress overlooking the town, for a small fee (5 kuna IIRC) you can climb up the very narrow steps to the top to overlook the town.

    Trogir citizen tower incorrectly called Karmelengo.At the southwest corner of the island is preserved fortress called Kamerlengo, which was located within the city walls on a strategically important place on the western sea approach to the city. The fortress was built in the early fifteenth century, shortly after the establishment of Venetian rule.Polygonal, the largest tower in the fortress, it is likely that an older datuma.Od and the tower towards the beach in the Middle Ages, the chain which is nailed together with porporele raised sunken ships preventing unwanted entry into the port.The fortress was built according to the ideas of Venetian experts local master Marin Radoje, otherwise builder seaports and vaults in the cathedral.It is now used as a summer theater.In addition to the bell tower great place for a perfect view of the city and its surroundings.

    Beautiful little city.. Loved the small alleys and historic architecture. The fort is typical and not necessarily the highlight when visiting.
