Kaštela Town Museum

Central Dalmatia

Built in the late 15th and early 16th centuries, Dvorac Vitturi was home to the Vitturi family right up until 1943, when it was converted into a school. Now it's a small museum, with one of the upstairs rooms devoted to archaeology (containing Roman coins, jewellery and pottery) and another to the lifestyles of the local nobility (with displays of furniture, weapons and clothing).
