History and sights

The area of Kaštela was always a pleasant place to live in. Centuries ago, after the Ancient Greeks had founded Trogir, it was covered in vines and olives. The Romans built roads there, as well as many country houses. In the 7th century this area was inhabited by Croats, who started building their own state on the foundations of the antique civilisation. Noble Croatian families built small towns with churches that exist even nowadays. During the war with Turks some twenty fortifications were erected by royals along the coast, in order to protect the inhabitants as well as the properties of the noble families. Nowadays only seven castles and fortifications are preserved. Around them settlements were sprouting to finally merge together into the town of Kastela. The name of the city derives from the Latin word “castellum“ that signifies a fortified castle, tower or wall.


Nowadays, Kastela is an important commercial and transit centre of the Central Dalmatia. The modern marina, situated on the north-eastern part of the town, near the medieval tower, provides sailors with high-quality services. The Riviera of Kastela is a popular summer destination. Along the long sandy beach there are tennis and other sports grounds (for basketball, football, volleyball, etc.), surrounded by greenery of pine and tamarisk trees. The guests can also rent boats and equipment for water sports. Kastel Luksic is well-known for its botanical garden with Mediterranean plants and pebble beaches. Besides beaches, the visitors will be drawn to Kastel Kambelovac due to the many excellent restaurants, attractive pathway along the coast and the mountain Kozjak. Most of the beaches in Kastel Gomilica are pebble beaches, and are, therefore, excellent for children.
