Trogir is a very nice and well preserved old town. This is the reason why it has the UNESCO badge. The fortress is near the sea and if you dare (and you should) climb till its top, you will have the chance to take some awsome panorama photos because there are islands and the town to see from above.

The fortress is located at the western end of the Riva. Entry is about 10 kn and you can climb the ramparts for views across Trogir. As with many historic buildings, the stairways are very narrow and, particularly at the higher levels, quite steep.at one point I struggled with part of the stairway and had to hand my shoulder bag...

At the end of Trogir waterfront is Kamerlengo fortress. Although there is nothing in there except summer concerts, views from the fortress are really nice.

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
