Trogir: medieval town
trogir

The heart of Trogir is small islet laying between the gentle hills on the mainland and the coast of the Island of Ciovo. Trogir is an excellent example of a medieval town built on and conforming with the layout of a Hellenistic and Roman city that has conserved its urban fabric to an exceptional degree and with the minimum of modern interventions, in which social and cultural development is clearly visible in every aspect of the townscape. The orthogonal street plan of this island settlement dates back to the Hellenistic period and it was embellished by successive rulers.
