After meeting with guide and getting tour instructions, we are grabbing our boards and starting to paddle together into this journey. At the bottom of mountain Kozjak, forming the bay of Kastela. The area between Kozjak and the sea, with its beauty, mildness and fertility has always attracted people. The barbarians devasted it in the early middle ages. The Croats settled here in the seventh century and created here the centre of their state. During the war with Turks they moved from the mountain villages towards fortifications erected by royals along the coast, in order to protect themselves and their peasants. Thus, 500 years ago there was a significant development of some twenty castles, fortifications, of which nowadays only seven are preserved. Around them settlements were sprouting to finally merge together into the town of Kastela. Seven little stone pearls in one shell.
During our tour we paddle along Kastel Kambelovac, built in1571 from the brothers Cambi. One fortificaton is the castle with a specific cylindrical form which eased the defenders’ activities. In its vicinity there is also th preserved village gate.
We move on to the Kastel( fortification) built in 1529from the benedictine sisters, on a sea reef called Gomilica. The castle’s entrance was protected by a tower erected above a stone bridge permeated with arcades. At the entrance there was a moveable wooden bridge. This Kastilac was one of the location of the well known GAMES OF THRONE SAGA.We will stop at the Kastilac, take a look into the building, take some pictures and when we get back from our little adventure, we’ll share our impressions, photos, talk about good times, oh there’s so much that we’re gonna find..Do you know that song? If not yet, I’m sure you will, and that’s the part of little secret touch which is gonna make your tour even more amazing!
