All these photos show the tower (and the views from its top) next to St. Lawrence church, which used to be a cathedral, so people continue to refer to it as the cathedral. The diocese was abolished in the 19th century when the parish of Trogir was annexed to the Split diocese. St. Michael's bell tower is further west on... More

25HRK represented great value, but Health and Safety is non-existant and caution the last few steps, which are narrow and steep. Great views over the central square, the terracotta rooftops and across the sea - you can see for miles!

If you're up for climbing a lot of stairs and are not claustrophobic, be sure to walk to the top of the bell tower for spectacular views. The part of the climb is very narrow, totally enclosed rock staircase with room for only one person going up or down. This opens on a roof area where you can take pictures... More

A little bit of a tricky hike but worth the view. Split and the surrounding area is a great site. There is a fee but it is worth the money.

Really worth climbing to the top of the tower for the fantastic views over Trogir and the Adriatic despite the very steep and basic last set of steps.

Lots of steps, which can be a bit harrowing if people are not prepared to give way going the other way, so stand your ground. Awesome views though from top, so worth the climb.

WOW! After climbing so many stairs, the view at the top was simply breathtaking. The perfect place to get a birdseye view of the beautiful town.

Great views from the bell tower. Quite steep narrow stairs to go up. The bells rang for 12 midday just before we got to the church. Lucky we weren't up the bell tower then as you are right next to the bells! It was supposed to have two bell towers but the first one took 400 years to build so... More

On a hot and humid day we climbed the Bell tower. It was a good experience! British Health and Safety need not fear- no competition... Handrails-who needs them?! Safety rails- only for sisseys! An experience not to be missed- super views, a brilliant panorama.

From the top of the tower there was an excellent view of the town & countryside o there are a lot of steps but the view was worth the climb.
