History of Town Trogir

Trogir was founded by a greek colony from the Adriatic island of Vis (Issa). They founded a town between the small island of Čiovo and the land, and named the town Tragurion in III. century B.C. When Romans took over, the town became a significant port for ships. In the vicinity of Trogir were famous quarries, from which stones were partially used to build to Diocletian Palace in Split. The oldest church in Trogir is a small three-nave basilica of St. Barbara, built in the IX. century, and renewed in XI. century. The church has installed more ancient parts and label that mentions Croatian name Dobrica.

From the time of the Romanesque many houses with original doors, windows, and various architectural details were preserved. The church of St. John the Baptist was also built in Romanesque style. Of fortresses preserved are Kastel Kamerlengo and round tower of St. Mark from XV. century. On the northern coast of the island of Čiovo, you also can find old buildings, such as the Dominican monastery of St. Cross from the XV. century.
