Since 1997, the historic city center of Trogir has been listed as a world heritage site. The examples of Venetian architecture in the city are amazing, though there are influences that go back to Greek settlements in the 3rd century BC. That means there has been 2,300 years of urban tradition and influence, all of which can be experienced by walking this city’s streets.
At the core of the city are about 10 churches and several buildings from the 13th century. The city walls are from the 15th century, while the city gate comes from the 17th century. Additional landmarks include the Cathedral, which offers the Portal of Master Radovan, along with the Duke’s Palace and the Fortress Kamerlengo.
Kamerlengo was built by the Republic of Venice and expanded upon a tower that was present as early as the late 14th century. It was a defensive structure and the place for administrative duties when first built. Today, Kamerlengo serves as a location of various performances throughout the summer months.
The town’s Mediterranean beauty was immortalised by the BBC, when scenes for episodes of Doctor Who were filmed here as a stand-in for Venice and Provence. The Tardis might have departed, but Trogir’s breathtaking setting remains, with a pedestrianised islet nestling between the residential mainland and the neighbouring island of Ciovo.
