The City Hall - Duke's Palace, Trogir

4.1
#4 of 11 in Historic Sites in Trogir
Memorable for its large clock tower facade and stunning Gothic architecture, The City Hall - Duke's Palace sits proudly in the main square of the Old Town of Trogir. First built in the 15th century as a symbol of political and economic strength of the city, it was also a residence for the duke. Gothic architectural features include a staircase in the courtyard, the winged lion of St. Mark, and many coats of arms of local families built into the walls. In the 17th century, the palace functioned as a theatre, but suffered extensive damage as a result of a fire. Subsequent architectural restorations were done in the Renaissance style. Today, the building serves as an administrative center. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to The City Hall - Duke's Palace by using our Trogir trip itinerary planning app .

  • Built to physically dominate the town center. The clock tower feels more like a fortification; squat and unproportional to the rest of the palace.  more »
  • Ivan pavao DURG square 3-storey stone building. See the whole building and stage designed the front of the clock tower, stalls and tables originally served in the small square, so it was difficult. Tourist information Office on the first floor.
