This hiking experience starts in the center of Trogir, near the wooden bridge and you then join the hiking path than leads you along a true countryside of Trogir and Seget Riviera. The path is named after Napoleon that ruled in Dalmatia from 1806 till 1814. During that time, many roads were built connecting Dalmatian coast with its hinterland. This road was built in 1807 when Dalmatia was under the French domination, due to Napoleon’s marshal – commander for Dalmatia, Mormont and due to Damdol – local district governor for Dalmatia. The road has been used for many years not only as a walking trail, but also as a road for horse-drawn vehicles going from Trogir to its hinterland and vice versa. After the new road was built, the old one became neglected.
The road has been transformed in the Path of Health because of its meaning and its position. It hasn’t changed a lot since the time it was built. Not far from this trail, the Roman path begins, along the valley of river Draga and connects to the first one in Seget Gornji, a beautiful place to relax after this hiking experience. The duration of the hike is of approximately 3 hours.
