Trogir: Kamerlengo Fortress
Named after the Venetian official who managed Trogir’s finances (the Kamerling or Chamberlain) this fortification dates to the 15th century and dominates the south-west corner of the island on which the old town sits. It is constructed on the local limestone in a irregular quadrilateral form with square towers at each corner except for the south-west where a substantial octagonal tower stands looking out over the channel to towards Ciovo and the west.
An entrance fee is charged which allows you access to the interior to walk around the battlements and the towers from which you can get a good view over the town and particularly the Riva.
By foot at the west end of Trogir Riva. Open daily from 9am-7pm during the summer season.
Trogir: at the western end of Trogir Riva. The entrance to the Kamerlengo Fortress is in its southern face overlooking the harbour wall where ferries moor up.
