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 barbarians devasted it in the early middle ages. The Croats settled here in the seventh century and created here the centre of their state. 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
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.
