Surrounded by steep hills to one side, and the gentle Adriatic on the other, Kaštela offer a calm ambiance that fits perfectly with the town’s historic churches, narrow stone streets, and small beaches that intertwine along the waterfront promenade.
Nestled between Split and Trogir, Kaštela is surrounded by steep hills to one side, and the gentle Adriatic on the other. In the 15th & 16th-centuries, local lords built the town that is a charming set of villages developed around the castles.
Kaštela offers a calm ambiance that fits perfectly with the town’s historic churches, narrow stone streets and small beaches that intertwines along the waterfront promenade.
Kaštela is an agglomeration of seven small settlements in Croatia, located in between the city of Split and Trogir, on the central Dalmatian coast.
What makes Kaštela different from other cities besides the long history of growing olives, vines, and many other agricultural goods, are 7 castles that spread throughout seven settlements that are ideal for walking or biking.
The Vitturi castle currently is a city museum and is associated with another fortified house in the vicinity due to the tragic love story between Miljenko and Dobrila, Croatia’s Romeo and Juliet from the 17th century. Dobrila from the Vitturi house fell madly in love with, Miljenko from the Rosani house, locally called Rušinac. The remains of that small fortification (Rušinac) Miljenko's birth house, stands on a cliff. An old church from the 16th century in the vicinity of Rušinac is the only witness of their tragic love as they are both buried inside.
