The Cathedral was surely beautiful from the outside and whilst poking a lens through a locked iron gate, but we were really disappointed that at midday on a Saturday after travelling all the way here it was closed.

This Tripadvisor listing has the wrong title. The map location and reviews are for the bell tower associated with St. Lawrence Cathedral on the main square of Trogir. St. Michael Monastery Church (on the north end of the island) also has a bell tower, which...More

The cathedral was built in 12c, but it looked much newer since it is well-preserved. Unfortunately it was closed to the public on the day we visited, but people told us that the view from the top of the tower is superb.

There were lot's of tourists but it wasn't high season so they closed the cathedral. Since it is the main attraction of the place, it should be open I think. But exterior was nice especially the handmade marble door. Still worth to see I guess.

This is the main church in Trogir. You do have to pay entry. The best thing I would say is climbing the tower. This will give you amazing views.

Trogir is a nice old city, to walk in the narrow street, there is a campenila in the cathedral and staires to go up, the panoramic view around is very nice, maybe the chandlier is in the cathedral.

I think the cost is €3.50 for entry, which covers entry to the church sections and the bell tower. Well worth it. Our best photos are from the bell tower!
