Thracian sanctuary “Eagle rocks”

Location: It is in the area Eagle Rocks at around 4km south of Ardino.

Description: The complex is dated IV – VI century B.C. and had a religious-burial purpose. In the highest rocks are cut around 90 trapezoidal niches. It is assumed that they have placed pottery or tiles associated with the cult of the dead. Under the rocks there are traces of furrows, altars and other ancient structures.

Status: The complex is declared for cultural monument.

Access: The most convenient approach to the building site is near the Historical Museum, in the direction toward Bistrogled neighborhood. The road is narrow but paved. Between the two neighborhoods there is a small wooden pavilion with a direction arrow on it, and a marked trail leads to the complex.
