Inexpensive but average attraction.. Not really much to see at this fortress. Walk round the walls then short climb to highest point.. where there is a great view over Trogir and the surrounding area.. Would say ok for short visit if in Trogir.

Title pretty much sums it up - old fortress which has been allowed to decay, 25 Croatian Krona to enter to see 4 crumbling walls and a stairs to the top of the wall. Most underwhelming monument/fortress/attraction I've ever visited.

We had been in Croatia for a week and hadn't gone in any churches or cathedrals yet so decided to pay the 25 kuna to have a look in the fortress. We all thought it was stunning and definitely worth the visit - if nothing else for the view. Fascinating to walk around the top as well.

Not worth the effort unless there is an event. Enjoy it when you want to have view from the tower on the aircraft on final approach.

The thing with most forts is you see the best of them from the outside. This is because often the walls and ramparts are the most impressive thing. Kamerlango fort is a good example of this. Although it is impressive from the outside, and there are good views, we didn't really see the 25kn entry free as being worth it.

Basically you pay to go up the tower and round the walls - not much else to see. The view is worth it and it gives you an impression of how it would work as defensive point. There are stalactites growing in the tower.....

This fortress consists only from it's bastions and the walls. The view from the main bastion is simply awesome expecially at night. You can see the walking street with all the lights,all the people. Very cool sight! Absolutely worth the entry price!

Kamerlengo is an ancient and large limestone fortress that was built by the Venetians as a naval base for their forces. Regardless how humble it seems now, it must have been really impressive at the time. Worth a visit. It is at the end of the promenade. It was built to protect the sea channel and the port of Trogir.... More

When we've enter the fortress it was like portal through time, I could felt that same feeling when walking through the streets of Trogir. It's incredible how humble you feel when step into this monument.
