Kastel Luksic, Croatia - holiday information

Kastel Luksic, Croatia – visitor information

Once the settlement was called Kastel Vitturi by the noblemen family from Trogir that built it. It is the biggest Kastel and it’s located on the border between Split and Trogir estates. Brothers Vitturi, with the approval of the Trogir Dutch Pesara built this citadel in the end of 16th century. The castle was separated on the north side from the settlement with a ditch and you could reach it by crossing a stone/wood mobile bridge that would be held up in case of danger and would serve as double protection. Except for the castle we recommend you visit the old parish church built in gothic-renaissance style with a preserved altar decoration (antependia) from coloured wood and the new parish church with the St. Arnir altar – master piece of Juraj Damlatinac. The settlement is also known for the love story of Miljenko and Dobrila from the year 1861 also called the Romeo and Julia of Kastel. Accommodation you can find in apartments, rooms, boarding houses and hotels and for a good gastro experience we recommend the tavern Intrada and Baletna skola.
