The Kastela villages and Trogir

When the guide book suggests seeing a cluster of villages under the collective name of Kastela, meaning castle, we obviously don’t think twice about going!! Situated between Trogir and Split, each little fishing village is centred around a tiny harbour, all with ancient buildings winding haphazardly inland to little squares where cafes and shops buzz with regulars. We started off at Kastela Novi, then made the short walk to Kastela Stari and on to Kastela Luksic where there was a newly renovated castle, once built for nobles to retreat to in the summer months. We had some lunch then headed back along the coastal path to the car and on to Trogir.

One of the prettiest towns we have been to, Trogir. Situated on a little island, surrounded by old city walls containing pretty little churches, a cathedral and lots of tiny streets full to the brim with little shops and lovely smelling restaurants! We walked up to the fortress at the end of the island, and through the alleyways to the main square where we grabbed an ice cream, then over the little bridge, past the marina to the market, full with home made olive oil, honey and cheese! We popped into Konzum, a cheap supermarket, then made the short drive back to our campsite.
