The town of Trogir is situated at the heart of central Dalmatia and is a true gem of the Adriatic coast, and indeed the Mediterranean. Designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, Trogir boasts a stunning cathedral, numerous historic churches, a beautiful waterfront, fortress and many other features.

Typical narrow street in the centre of Trogir

The town centre is a tangle of paved narrow streets which lead to the wide promenade next to the Trogirski kanal. The old town itself is a small island, sandwiched between the mainland, which rises abruptly to the Zagora range, and the island of Ciovo.

Convent of St Nicholas


Climbing the cathedral belltower is a must for the reasonably fit with a head for heights. The ascent becomes gradually steeper and narrowed, with a final push through a vertical ladder up to a platform surrounding the magnificent bell. The views are stunning and well worth the effort. To the south the island of Ciovo stretches out and appears to meet the Split peninsula, creating the Kastelanski sea.
