Kaštela are picturesque little towns of the central Dalmatia, between Split and Trogir. Under the name Kaštela seven interconnected little towns are hidden lined up along the shore of the Kaštela Bay.
They are by name: Štafilić, Novi, Stari, Lukšić, Kambelovac, Gomilica and Sućurac. The history of Kaštela goes back all the way to the Neanderthals (remains found in the Mujina Cave), later they thrive economically and as a civilization under the authority of Greece and Rome, next came the Croats, then the Venetian authority, and so on to the present day.
The witnesses to this envious history are the remains of ancient villa's, Early Croatian Churches, castles. One of the most beautiful promenades stretches between Kaštel Gomilica and Kaštel Lukšić.
Kaštela can be reached from Split by car or a local bus number 37, departing from Sukoišanska street in Split:
