Summary/Abstract: In this article the author analyses the economic topography of medieval Trogir. The most active parts of the old nucleus were the main square and the main streets (former cardo and decumanus). These were primarily the places where the craftsmen and merchants had their staciones. The main square was under the strict communal control. Industrial activities were concentrated in the burgus (later Città Nuova) and activities “unacceptable” for the town were scattered throughout the area extra muros. The most lively area outside the walls was certainly the port.
