Kaštela – The old tower Ćipiko gets a new role
In Kaštel Novi the upgrade and restoration of the tower Ćipiko, a protected cultural monument, has recently started.The aim is to reconstruct and restore the tower and return it to its original condition as it was in the 15th century and open a four-star hotel.

The hotel will have around 50 accommodation units, offices and exclusive apartments in the tower. It is an investment of 75 million kunas.The fort Ćipiko is a fortified mansion with inclined walls of the ground floor, which was built in 1512 by a nobleman from Trogir Pavao-Antun Cippico, and near it was built a fortified settlement for villagers from the area. It gives the impression of a strong fort, but the decorated balconies and windows point and its rural-residential purposes.

It is the monumental tower Ćipiko, which houses the city museum, that is the symbol of Kaštel Novi, a place located 17 kilometers from Split. Within the archaeological collection of the Kaštel museum are preserved valuable ancient Croatian finds from the sites Bijaći and Radun, and Hellenistic pottery from the Resnik area.

The wealth of heritage and history is preserved and nurtured at the Museum of Kaštel among the stone walls of the tower Ćipiko.A walk throught the tipically narrow streets of Novi Kaštel next to the stone porches and arches leads to the taverns of the Kaštel wine makers where excellent wines are kept, the fruit of their lovingly tended vineyards.
