Rampart (Bedem)

In the 15th century, Marina was under increasing threat from an Ottoman invasion, so a castle was built to defend the inhabitants. In 1495, the Venetian government gave their consent to Frano Marcello (Francesco Marcello), who was the Bishop of Trogir at the time, to build a fortress in the Bosiljine Bay (Saldun), near the church of St. Marina. In the same project, external defensive walls were built together with the Tower and the Citadel, which are a unique example of medieval residential and fortification architecture. The outer defensive walls and residential buildings of Marina were severely damaged in the Ottoman siege of 1657, and the remains are still visible today
