I highly reccomend to climb up the steep and narrow stairs to the belltower. The view is just amazing. You can see the entire town lying on your palm.

Entry cost was very reasonable. The church entry has been beautifully restored and inside was beautiful. We were treated to an organ concert which resonated throughout the cathedral, we realised why ten minutes later - the Queen of Belgium arrived to inspect the site! My husband climbed the bell tower and enjoyed the view, if not the stairs - not... More

Magnificent views from the top of Cathedral, so pay an entrance fee and climb steep stairs all the way to the top. It is worth climbing as you will see Trogir from above, Kamerlengo fortress as well as view of Ciovo island.

The cathedral, baptistry, and bell tower are well worth the small entrance fee. It is full of history and the statues and frescos are inspiring. Be sure to spend some time viewing the doors, take some pictures for future reference.

All the guide books delight in saying how splendid this Cathedral in Trogir is. Whilst I would agree that the main door is quite magnificent and worth seeing, the interior of the church was a huge disappointment. Nothing very interesting in the way of sculptures, architecture etc Unless you are desperate don't spend your money visiting but take a peek... More

Not grand in size but fascinating nonetheless. Much to see (especially the alter piece and decoration n the West transept - note God's head popping through the ceiling).

Spend a while and soak up the history and peace in this building. The memorial to St Ivan is wonderful.

The church is small, but loaded with history from 13th -17th century. The bell tower, a step walk on narrow steps, accesses to great panoramic views of Trogir area and beyond. Definitely worth a trip up

The cathedral, baptistry and bell tower are well worth a visit. The decorated doors tell several stories and it is worth spending the time to "read" them. Climbing the bell tower gives a super view over Trogir's historic core and surroundings. Not one for suffers of claustrophobia but still worth 20Kn even if you only go into the baptistry and...

Imagine the nerve to require some kind of payment to enter a church!! While I can understand requesting some type of donation, this was a slap in the face to Catholics and even non-Catholics everywhere.
