Fortress Kamerlengo is the second most monumental building in Trogir, after the Cathedral of St. Lawrence. It is considered to be a must-see place for all visitors who come to the beautiful town Trogir, sometimes referred to as "Croatian Venice".

Fortress Kamerlengo attractions

The fortress was built in the 15th century for the purpose of defence against Ottoman attacks, which were harassing Europe at that time. Venice, which at that time was ruling Dalmatian coast, built this fortress alongside many other interesting fortification objects, like Sibenik fortresses, and Defense wall in Grebastica.

The fortress is a trapezoid shape, with a fort on each angle. The biggest fort was built hundred years before the fortress.

There is a nice panoramic view of Trogir and Ciovo from the top of the fortress.

The fortress is located at the end of Trogir Riva. The building is easily visible once you get to the Riva. You can reach it by bike or by walking. During the summer season, it's best to go there on foot, since there are many people on Riva, and it would be difficult to ride a bicycle.
