With the city of Solin and the cities of Trogir and Split – both on the UNESCO list of protected patrimony makes them an urban complex. Although the area of Kaštela is indisputably a rich archeological site with remains dating back through history – since prehistory to the ancient Greek, Roman and Croatian times – Kaštela is mostly renowned for its fortifications – the castles (Kaštela). Urban settlements Kaštel Štafilić, Kaštel Novi, Kaštel Stari, Kaštel Lukšić, Kaštel Kambelovac, Kaštel Gomilica and Kaštel Sučurac were built at the end of 15th and during the 16 century as a sequence of fortifications – castles, as well as villages surrounded by massive walls that today form the city of Kaštela.
