The cathedral was built in 12c, but it looked much newer since it is well-preserved. Unfortunately it was closed to the public on the day we visited, but people told us that the view from the top of the tower is superb.

There were lot's of tourists but it wasn't high season so they closed the cathedral. Since it is the main attraction of the place, it should be open I think. But exterior was nice especially the handmade marble door. Still worth to see I guess.

This is the main church in Trogir. You do have to pay entry. The best thing I would say is climbing the tower. This will give you amazing views.

Amazing views if you decide to take the climb to the top of the bell tower! Not for the faint hearted though. On one section it is a very tight squeeze for 2 people.

Trogir is a nice old city, to walk in the narrow street, there is a campenila in the cathedral and staires to go up, the panoramic view around is very nice, maybe the chandlier is in the cathedral.

I think the cost is €3.50 for entry, which covers entry to the church sections and the bell tower. Well worth it. Our best photos are from the bell tower!
