What You will experience?

There are several benefits to booking a private tour of Trogir. Together with our driver-guide, the city tour will give you the best introduction to Trogir. Today it’s economic, history, culture center of Dalmatia. Encircled by the Adriatic sea, the town welcoming boats of all shapes and styles. The entire town grew out of the ruins of an ancient palace. Today Trogir is home to many cafes, outdoor markets, and artisan shops.

The Kamerlengo Castle

Built by the Venetians in around 1420, this fortress was once connected to the city walls. Along the walls of the fortress, at the crown, there is a passage from all sides that served guard patrols, with a wooden fence and handholds. The Kamerlengo Fortress is open for visitors and from the largest and oldest tower, there is a spectacular view of Trogir. In the summer, numerous concerts, shows, and film productions take place there. The small walls fragments are located in the Northern and the Western part of the city. The XIII century front South walls, as well as the Fort of St. Nicholas (kula sv. Nikole) and Fort Vitturi (kula Vitturi) have been well preserved. They are unique fortifications examples from those times.

The Cathedral of St. Lawrence

Is the town’s centerpiece, located in the main square. Built between the XIII and XVII century, the cathedral has a rich history. The bell tower alone took 200 years to build, thus becoming a textbook lesson of the Dalmatian architectural styles: Gothic at the bottom, Venetian Gothic in the middle and Renaissance at the top. The cathedral’s front entry – the ornately decorated, recently restored Radovan’s portal – is worth seeing. Inside, it’s dark, with many altars. The treasury features some beautiful XV century carved-wood cabinets, filled with ecclesiastical art and gear The cathedral is included on the UNESCO World Heritage list.

Romanesque portal

One of the most notable features of the Cathedral is its amazing Romanesque door, carved in 1240 by Master Radovan. It is a monumental and unique piece of art of Dalmatian Middle-age plastic, one of the most important monuments of Croatian history. The local architect and sculptor Master Radovan worked on the cathedral’s gateway (main West portal) during the early stages of its construction. Most of the portal was carved by the master himself, and some part by his pupils and followers. Finished and signed in 1240, it is a monumental and, perhaps, unique work of this great Croatian artist. The portal is divided into two parts, upper and lower. The upper part shows scenes from the Gospels, that is, the life of the Christ. Human forms dominate the portal. Both the internal and external doorposts rest on the back of bent over bearers, also the work of Radovan himself. Beside the portal, there are pictures of Adam and Eve standing on the backs of two lions.
