    Very beautiful views of old town
    Fortress Kamerlengo is located in a.side in the old town of Trogir, a Venetian-style town near Split, in Dalmatian Coast. It is a very nice and little fortress, which you can visit and especially go up to the some towers. From here, you can see very nice views of the old town and the sea. Really very beautiful.

    Old Venetian Fort
    Perched at the edge of the Riva, Kamerlengo Castle offers sweeping vistas of Trogir from its historic walls and towers. Kamerlengo Castle, which was formerly the residence of the Venetian governor. Built by the Venetians around 1430, facing the sea, it has a four-sided structure with a hexagonal base. Its high walls connect the three towers and the bastion. Venice, which at that time had the rule over most of the Dalmatian coast, built similar fortresses in other towns. This imposing building was connected to the Tower of São Marcos. The large open-air space inside the castle is used for theatrical performances and concerts during the summer months. For a small fee, one can climb to the top to take in stunning views of orange rooftops, waterfront promenade down below, and majestic mountains in the distance. The climb took around 10 minutes and although the stairs were a little tough at the times, it was worth the effort and money.

    Traveling the Dalmatian Coast to Trogir
    Fascinating mid-15th century castle located off the Adriatic in the town of Tragir. The view from the top of the fortress was amazing. I could see how beautiful Trogir is from the 360 degrees view. About a 10 to 15 minute tour of the castle, I then strolled a short distance to restaurant row along the boardwalk. Pick a place to sit near the water and experience why it’s known as Croatian Venice!

    Great view from the top
    It is situated at the end of Trogir's Promenade and the entry is Euro 5/person. The lady at the ticket office said it has narrow steep stairs so because I had knee problem only my husband went in. There is nothing to see inside but from the top is great view on the old town, opposite island Ciovo and generally all around.

    Like Trogir simple and fun
    Larger castles have more but like Trogir, well laid out and not nearly as busy as Dubrovnik and Split. Can take a few minutes to see or better, enjoy the views and read its history. There is a nice film on it as well.

Lovely fort just at the end of Trogir's seaside promenade which looks really iconic on the outside but let's be honest it is enough to take a picture of it, or pose in front because it doesn't really offer a lot on the inside. However decent historic building which adds up to Trogir's look.

This was an interesting fort from ancient history. It gives you a feel for the conditions and struggles for safety in the past.

Walking up the waterfront you will come across the fort, from outside it’s really nice and looks like a nice fortified fort that is coming in most coastal towns in Europe.

Did g enter the fort as it was closed, but did enjoy walking around the fort.

The castle was built after 1420, when the Republic of Venice conquered Trogir. Kaštel Kamerlengo was sited in the southwest of the city, to defend the sea channel and the approach to the port. The fort has a trapezoidal floor plan with a monumental polygonal tower facing the sea and smaller corner towers facing the other direction. It’s possible to climb all the way up to the roof of the polygonal tower via some steep stairs and ladders. Probably impossible for someone with mobility issues to climb, but worth it for the amazing views.

Ramparts all around the walls allow visitors to walk the entirety of the fortress. The main gate of the castle with a lunette and drawbridge is on the north side of the castle. In the inner courtyard there were residential buildings for the castellan and crew and the chapel (I think) where there’s a video on loop about the history of the fortress.
