Kamerlengo is an ancient and large limestone fortress that was built by the Venetians as a naval base for their forces. Regardless how humble it seems now, it must have been really impressive at the time. Worth a visit. It is at the end of the promenade. It was built to protect the sea channel and the port of Trogir.... More

When we've enter the fortress it was like portal through time, I could felt that same feeling when walking through the streets of Trogir. It's incredible how humble you feel when step into this monument.

The fortress is located by the end of the maritime promenade, which is quite a nice walk (here it was the only place we found the Fritule dumplings to eat). We did not actually enter the fortress since you have to pay and it looked like the view inside would be very similar to the view outside.

As a fortress it was below average, more like a wall only. But it was a great view of the town and the harbour. Worth the low fee.

We decided to go and have a look whilst strolling along the harbour but to be honest there is not a great deal to see. I have no doubt it was impressive in its heyday but the visit was a little underwhelming! The views from the top are nice but save your money and go and buy a beer on... More

As people say there is not much inside except some pigeon nests and the odd stalactite but the views are magnificent and it was very cheap to get in and if you are in Trogir it is close to everything else. No disabled or pushchair access one quite narrow staircase near top and I saw one parent carrying a baby... More

This is an impressive structure from years gone by. The design and construction still impresses. Portions do however need maintenance.
