Kastel Gomilica is a bustling coastal town within the area of Kastela in Dalmatia, Croatia. The city is located on the beautiful Bay of Kaštela. With more than 40,000 inhabitants, it is the second largest and most populated town in Split and Dalmatia. It covers a large area stretching over 17 km. The city first consisted of seven settlements around castles in the district which later joined forces and developed into a town.
Built in the 16th-century, Kastel Gomilica sits on land donated by King Zvonimir of Croatia. Benedictine nuns founded the city and also organised the creation of the Romanesque Church of St Cosmas and Damian. Back in 1160, the Sisters were responsible for the build of a Catholic monastery on a small island known today as Kastilac. In more recent times, the city has gained a fan club because it featured as “The City of Braavos” in the TV series”Game of Thrones”.
Kastela has an impressive modern harbour called Marina Kastla which can accommodate more than 300 boats within the marina.
Reaching the port takes only a few minutes by car as it is located just 7 km from Split airport. Many companies now offer both scheduled and charter flights to major European destinations.
