The fortress walls and the tower are empty so you can use your imagination to fill the empty space. In it's hey day when the Kamerlenging organised the town from here it would have been quite different. The views are back over town including the cathedral and church towers and the ship dismantlers on the adjoining island.

Kamerlengo Fortress is an impressive fortification which suggests to visitors how important this city was during the Middle Ages.

It is cheap, but the tower is really dirty, and it smells like piss! Also not friendly at the entrance.

The main thing to do is to climb the tower, which is not too tall, but the last stairs are hard to get down from, very steep. But he view that opens from the top is beautiful!

cheap to get into, bit of a wobbly climb up to top, but well worth the view. Fantastic viewpoint for lovely pictures

One of the key attraction in this old town of Trogir is the Kamerlengo Fortress. Standing tall and magnificent along the seaside promenade, it is impossible to miss this stunning structure that speaks volumes of the medieval character in this town. First erected in 1420, the...

Walking up to the tower not strenuous, but watch your head as you go up the steps, which were a little rickety when we were there. The entrance guy almost didn't give us our change, so make sure you get correct change when buying ticket.

A typical theme of postcard, it seems like a real fortress, but it is not. There is a nice picture from the wall of the fortress, but inside is worthless

We chanced upon Trogir - knew next to nothing about the place. As a lover of castles I (errrr.... we) made straight for the fortress. When approaching from the town it looks awesome - sturdy complete battlements - imposing walls - towers - it looked to have all the makings of a fantastic castle to explore. Inside it really is...
