The fortress, built in 1437, was used to house the Venetian army and defend the sea channel and the approach to the port.
Today it is used as a stage for many outdoor cultural events. Chains stretched from the tower to the island of Ciovo.
Chains (Chains) prevented access to enemy ships.1378. A naval battle between Venice and Genoa took place in front of the tower. The sunken galleys were full of building materials. From the galleys, the people of Trogir made a series of artificial reefs, which prevented the entrance to the port. The tower is trapezoidal in shape, and in the womb it contained living quarters, a well, the chapel of St. Mark (saint of the Venetian Republic). Outside the castle, at a distance of 5 meters, the outer walls were erected to make it easier to defend the port from various war devices. It was separated from the city by a defensive canal. In addition to a very old story from history, the tower also offers a beautiful view of the old town, the promenade and the sea, and it is definitely worth visiting when visiting the old town.

We visited last summer with the kids. The tower offers a beautiful view of the old town. It was amazing to note that the dragons in GOT were imprisoned there
