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.
