Kaštel Gomilica

If you travel from Split to Trogir through Kastela, you will come across Kastel Gomilica, the second part of the town Kastela, which stretches along the middle Dalmatian coastline over seven districts. The fortress, “Kastilac” was built in 1545 by the sisters of the Benedictine order. The fortress stretches out on the Islet of Gomila and is responsible for the town's name. The Benedictine allowed some farmers and fishermen to build houses inside the fortress walls in order to have protection from the Turks. About 30 of these houses can still be seen today.

Under the supervision of the monastery in the 12th century, the Church of Sveti Kuzma i Damiana was built. It was built in the Romanesque style upon the foundations of an early Christian church. Sveti Kuzma i Damiana is considered one of the most important churches in the area. Growing in front of the church is a 700 year old oak tree. The 3,500 residents of Kastel Gomilica like to tell themselves that King Zvonimir once rested in the shade of this tree.

Kastel Gomilica has one of the few well-developed marinas in Kastela. The modern sailing boat harbor is located in a sheltered position between Mount Kozjak, the Split Peninsula of Marjan and the Island of Ciovo which is connected to Trogir. Boaters and sailors are drawn to the marina and, therefore, often and willingly make their way to the coast of Kastel Gomilica.
