Kastela

Kastela

Kaštela is an agglomeration of seven picturesque little towns of the central Dalmatia, situated between Split and Trogir. The Kastela (Kastel means castle) include these seven towns: Štafilić, Novi, Stari, Lukšić, Kambelovac, Gomilica and Sućurac built around medieval castles. Kastela were once an ancient Greek port, although we can see plentiful evidence of earlier civilizations that inhabited this area, like the remains found in Mujina Cave which go back to the Neanderthals. There are numerous historical landmarks that witness the rich history of Kastela like the remains of ancient villa’s, castles and towers, churches and other monuments.

Kastela also boasts beautiful and varied surroundings, narrow streets, small picturesque, pebble beaches and the famous seafront promenade between Kastel Luksic and Kastel Gomilica. If you plan on visiting Kastel Stafilic don’t forget to notice the 1500 years old olive tree. The fortress of Kaštilac in Gomilica has the unique presentation of a small island lying adjacent to the mainland. It was one of the locations where the TV series Game of Thrones was filmed. Apart from sunbathing and swimming on the many local beaches, you can hike to the peak of mountain Kozjak, do scuba diving as there are numerous interesting dive sites nearby and of course sightseeing. Hiking to the peak of mountain Kozjak will offer you the view that is hard to ever forget.
