This magnificent structure is the work of the master Marin Radoje (14th – 15th century), and it was built as a continuation of the so- called fortress of chains. It got its name from the word ‘kamerlengo’ (camerarius), clerk – cashier, who was responsible for all financial jobs by arrangement with the duke. Today, it is an irreplaceable summer stage and gazebo.
St. Mark’s fortress
Saint Marc’s tower was built during the 15th century to protect the town. It is located on the north-west side of the island as an extent of the Kamerlengo fortress. Between the fortress and tower there is a gloriet built in the beginning of the 19th century in gratitude to France during the Napoleon wars.
