Small and humble monument in appreciation to France located on the waterfront, next to the Kamerlengo fortress, in a truly beautiful setting. Easy to find. Walkable distance. It's very popular at sunset. Regardless the unpleasant graffiti close by, it's still a good place for some nice photos with great background, near the harbor and with cute trees. Good views around...

The monument is located on the western side of the island. You can easily reach it by walking to the very end of the promenade, where you’ll see Fortress Kamerlengo. Keep going on further round the Fortress and you should be able to see the fairly elusive and secluded Marmont’s Monument. The monument is worth a quick photo-stop if you... More

Have to say I did walk past this monument without taking much note of it. The kids were playing a game in the field behind this structure and we were distracted by their game! However, I am glad I read about it here on TA because now I do recall seeing it and thinking at the time that it was... More

This is a monument, a small sthing, stands at the western tip of the Trogir island. Behind a sports field and the Kamerlengo fortress. The modern harbor /marina is visible on the left (south). This monument is kind of on the way, if you walk around the historic center/island along the coast. If you have time for this , why... More

Surrounded with old pine trees, football pitch and the fortress, it is the most romantic spot in the town. If you date a girlfriend, you would have probably brought her exactly there...that's how I tought. It didn't work in my case?! Damn!!!

This was built in 1808 by the request of a French general, Auguste de Marmont. It's positioned on the north end of the island between St Mark's Tower and the Kamerlengo fortress. definitely not a destination but a walk by while see the tower and fort.

Not the Venice this time but the French. A fairly standard unexciting monument perhaps just a political statement, largely only of interest as part of Trogir's historical story.

This is not really an outstanding monument, but it recalls an 18th c historic episode when the French troops briefly occupied Trogir. Built in 1809 by the city inhabitants, it is meant to honor the memory of Marshal Marmont, who apparently was much admired by people.

Try not to walk past this monument if you complete a circuit of Trogir island without stopping to admire it. It is adjacent to the town football pitch between the Kamerlengo fortress and St Mark's tower. It may not be the grandest most inspiring monument to a previous Governor but it is still standing there! I think the description "stone... More

Place of love behind big tower is secret place of many local couples in the night hours. It is romantic to watch sunset on that place. Locals say that it is good place to kiss a girl for the first time
