  • The Cathedral of San Lorenzo is located in the old town of Troguir. Its construction begins around the year 1200 and ends in 1589. It deserves a special mention the portico of the entrance, it was sculpted from 1240 by Radovan. Its architecture is varied due to the long period of construction (Gothic, Venetian Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque). Their income is worth 25 Kunas, and to those who are encouraged to climb the bell tower since its ladder is quite steep, the prize is a wonderful view of the city.

  • Nice church. As we were there a wedding was taking place, which was quite interesting with musicians outside. We climbed the tower and you have a nice view over the Place and Trogir.
  • Just an old town with narrow streets and hundreds of tourists. Maybe knowing the history would make this place more special. I was visiting this place with my family and a baby with stroller. Prices are higher as usual. There are market near by to buy some freshies ( fruits, veggies, fish ).
