0177 Decline of Medieval Urban Symbols of Power: Tower Houses in Trogir, Croatia

Ana Plosnić Škarić
The paper analyses the diminishment of the importance and significance of the medieval tower houses in Trogir caused by social, political, and economic changes as well as by the urban development and the changes in the city defence system. The findings suggest that the decline of the towers had already begun during the 13th century. Eventually it resulted in the preservation of only a few, who have, however, been subjected to subsequent remodelling.
