According to historical sources, the place was built in 1564 with the purpose of the protecting and defending the population from the village of Trogir from the Turkish threat. Along the coast near Trogir a castle was raised, that is a rectangular fortified settlement with four towers and three city entrance. Shortly after its construction, the castle was inhabited by people from the village hinterland between the 16th and 17th centuries.
