Trogir Old Town

Overall setting

Trogir Old Town is a jewel. It snugly sits on a petite island wedged between the Croatian coast and Ciovo Island. Most of the monumental structures - castles, churches, and more - date back over 500 years. The grand main square, the narrow cobblestone alleys, the sea of reddish-orange tiled roofs, and the yacht-lined harbor add to the appeal.

St Lawrence Cathedral

The highlight is Radovan's wonderfully sculpted west portal. The bell tower that dominates the skyline is also laudable.

Castle and city walls

Their bold profiles take us back to medieval times when Trogir was a prosperous and influential Mediterranean trading port.
