Kastela

Kaštela is a town with “seven villages” located between Trogir and Split.

The town of Kaštela is located on the coast of the Bay of Kaštela. It has over 40 000 inhabitants, and it is the second largest town in the Split and Dalmatia County. It stretches over the length of 17 kilometers.

Our town is specific because of the fact that it developed around 7 settlements (Kaštel Štafilić, Kaštel Novi, Kaštel Stari, Kaštel Lukšić, Kaštel Kambelovac, Kaštel Gomilica and Kaštel Sućurac) or around castles. Each village has its own particularity merged into character of this part of Mediterranean. Radun and Rudine emerge in recent years as the two new smaller centers.

The beauty of Kaštela and the Field of Kaštela inspired many poets who described their beauty in many poems.
“Seven villages like seven swans” became a motto of the town of Kaštela. In the most parts of the Field of Kaštela vineyards, olive groves, cherries, figs and autochthonous Mediterranean vegetation trade places with monuments of natural heritage and park architecture.
During the Greek and Roman rule these parts experienced their economic and cultural prosperity.
Remains of many antic villas and the Siculi settlement at Resnik are the proofs of that.
