Kastel Novi

Pavao Antun Cipiko, a nobleman from Trogir had his castle built in1512 in form of a
rectangular keep. A settlement developed around the castle. It was encircled by a defensive
wall on its eastern, northern and western side and by the sea on the south.

The parish church of St. Petar od Klobucca was built on foundations of a church from the
13th century. It keeps a rich treasury of silver and church robes.
Sculptor Marin Studin (1895 – 1960) was born in Kaštel Novi. He was a student of
Ivan Meštrovic. He made a statue of St. Roko which decorates little church of St. Roko
from the 16th century.

In the field above Kaštel Novi vineyards were cultivated from ancient times. They were
decimated by phylloxera in the 19th century and renewed with new vine species. Only a few
old species left, and among them Crljenak kaštelanski, which is known in the world and
especially in California as Zinfandel. The homeland of the American vine is Kaštel Novi
where a few vines still grow in the vineyard of Mr. Radunic. Vine species of Crljenak
kaštelanski found its place in the Biblical Garden.
The church of Gospa od Špiljana or Stomorija in the Field of Kaštela was built and founded
as a privilege in 1189 by didici from the Špiljani village. They gained right to elect a
parson who was provided for by the income of the privilege.
A fragment of an old-Christian relief which displays two dolphins and a cross was built in
the wall of the church's apse.
The church is surrounded by hundreds-of-years-old trees. There is a spring in the yard of
the church. Due to all these fact this was an ideal place to establish the Biblical Garden
in honor of the first visit of the Pope John Paul II to Croatia. All plants mentioned in
the Bible already grow or will be planted in the garden.

Kaštel Novi offers possibility of stay in private accommodation.
