Holiday in Trogir
Saint Barbara church, located at the heart of Trogir’ historic quarter is an architectural gem that dates to the 11th century where you can admire its irregular design and beautiful adjacent clock tower. Opposite, 15th century Cipiko Palace resembles a Venetian building with its Romanesque style and large windows.
As a testament of its maritime heritage, the town displays two stunning late medieval century fortresses that proudly defended Trogir against vicious sea pirates and will delight the youngest in the family. If the children are keen on pirate history a visit to the nearby town of Omiš, a secluded settlement famous for being a 15th century corsair hideout, might be just the thing.
Once you have visited Trogir’s city centre and wandered along its narrow lanes and romantic corners you can recharge your batteries with a refreshing glass of wine at one of the many cafes before heading towards one of the numerous marinas where you can take a boat trip along the stunning coastline, or perhaps go for a swim at one of the many hidden coves bathed by crystalline waters.
