Trogir was founded by Greek colonists from the island of Vis in the 3rd century B.C., and its many churches, palaces and fortresses testify to its turbulent and rich history. The city was placed under the protection of UNESCO and entered in the register of World Cultural Heritage in 1997. Trogir is home to the first pharmacy in Europe, which opened in 1271. Among the sacral monuments, the most important are the Cathedral of Sv. Lovro, with its magnificent portal by the master Radovan, and the Chapel of Sv. Ivan Trogiranin, one of the most beautiful Renaissance monuments in Europe.
Special attractions are located
in the old town on the peninsula: the Kamerlengo Fortress is
a magnificent building from the 15th century, with an attractive polygonal
tower, while the tower of Sv. Marko was built during the Venetian
Republic for the purpose of defence against the Turks. There is a classicist
pavilion called Glorijet between the towers, one of the few monuments to
the short French rule in Dalmatia.
