Stunning views of Trogir Croatia, Travel Photo Mondays #40

Views of the Dalmatian coastline from Trogir

 Stunning views of Trogir Croatia

Looking out from the top of the bell tower of St. Lawrence, the main cathedral of Trogir, you will see some stunning views of the Croatian coastline. Turn around to face another view point from the tower and you see the entire town spread out before you with other towers representing the 10 other churches located on this historic island.

The views are magnificent, and you can see so many interesting details from above including: the central square and city hall, the marina with the main fortress and city walls,  various architecture from Gothic, medieval to Venetian styles.  In a distance are the blue colors of the Adriatic ocean and some distant islands in the background. Closure you’ll notice all the architectural influences covering Venetian, gothic to baroque – all significant contributors to the electic and rich details encompassing this Unesco World Heritage site.

Going back down the tower into main cathedral hall – the interior is relatively simple but striking it it’s reserved gothic palate. It’s only when you walk around the interior and loggia that you notice all the beautiful details of this imposing cathedral in the center of town.  At the entrance, the saints stand tall on Venetian lions guarding the entrance gates with intricately carved details.

Finally outside, you get a view of the ornate facade and the magnificent bell tower of St. Lawrence-  it’s definitely worth climbing to see those spectacular and endless views of the Dalmatian coastline.

    I have been some times to Croatia, but never heard about this city. Thank you for sharing! It’s really beautiful 🙂

    Lovely photos of Croatia. I visited Croatia when it was Yugoslavia. Looks like I need a return trip.

    I love the shot looking down from the bell tower! It looks like a beautifully old and crumbly place to explore.

    Eastern Europe is still mostly on my travel list, including Croatia and, of course, your photos make me want to visit there sooner rather than later. Love the striking blues in the sea and sky that you captured.

    You really are an inspiration with your quality of images that you produce. I am particularly intrigued by the shots taken from the bell tower that are so vivid and capture a perfect surrounding of the nearby area. I recently did a Dream Destination post on Croatia but failed to include Trogir which I must now add to my list of ‘must-see’ places when visiting there. A really insightful post and as always it’s a pleasure to join up with this link-up every Monday!

    Love the view taken through the bell tower, Noel… for me, the lighting has really enhanced the image and brought out some lovely details.

    Your work is always so beautiful; so inspiring!

  8. Michelle April 14, 2014 at 12:49 pm #

    These are all such amazing photos. Your photography gives me something to shoot for when I visit Florence next week :-)!

    Noel Stunning photos of the bell tower. I particularly was taken with the details of the architecture. This looks like a great walking city with so much to take in. Definately a place I’d be looking up!

    I am reading so much about Croatia at the moment and seeing so many wonderful photos of the country including yours that I think I need to pack my bags and take a trip 🙂

  11. Briona April 14, 2014 at 7:59 am #

    Wow! Lovely pictures. I really like the one with the details on the bell tower. The cathedral was closed when I went to Trogir, which I guess means that I am going to have to go back! 🙂

    I love historical places, Trogir Croatia looks to be a place one could wander for days and just take it all in. I love the color of the water in the second photo, such a vibrant shade of blue, must have been the way the water was hitting it. Well-done Noel.

    Gorgeous photos, I love Croatia 🙂

    Hi Noel, beautiful photos! The view of Trogir from St. Lawrence Cathderal is stunning indeed. I enjoyef the view of church towers, the archtectural cocktail, the marina, etc. I love your shot of cathderal interior. Amazing to see heavy Venetian influence in the designs. Thanks for the introduction to Trogir.

    Great photos, beautiful town.

  16. jesh StG April 13, 2014 at 10:02 pm #

    Indeed stunning, Noel! Love the rooftop views. I have actually never seen an early-Gothic architectural style. One still can see the transition from the older Roman style – interesting!

  17. Catherine April 13, 2014 at 9:09 pm #

    Now there’s no doubt I need to put Croatia on my travel list, Trogir is beautiful and so rich in history and magnificent architecture… your photos are stunning Noel. Love the perspective of the Adriatic and rooftops from the Venetian bellower.

  18. Molly S April 13, 2014 at 9:04 pm #

    Amazing photos. I really have to get to Croatia next year!

  19. Michele {Malaysian Meanders} April 13, 2014 at 7:25 pm #

    Those are indeed stunning views. I like all the red tiled rooftops and the beautiful, blue water. Croatia has come across my travel radar only recently. What you show looks like a good way to explore Old World Europe in a place that perhaps isn’t as overrun with tourists as other destinations.

  20. The Crowded Planet April 13, 2014 at 12:48 pm #

    I’m loving your Croatia series Noel… makes me want to go back and explore more. Trogir looks lovely, definitely feels Venetian!

  21. Mary {The World Is A Book} April 13, 2014 at 7:49 am #

    I’ve never been to Croatia but I’m dying to go. This cathedral is beautiful and definitely worth the climb to see those gorgeous views. I hardly pass by a European church without going in so I would love to visit this someday soon.

  22. Sand In My Suitcase April 13, 2014 at 6:11 am #

    Such a lovely little Croatian town! We have fond memories of our too-short visit – nice to re-visit through your photos…

  23. Magali@TheLittleWhiteHouse April 13, 2014 at 5:51 am #

    Your title is perfect! Each picture is indeed stunning. My favourite one is the one from the bell tower.

  24. Corinne April 13, 2014 at 3:39 am #

    Noel, I just got back from Croatia…and Trogir is beautiful. Great photos as always!
