Thracian fortress near village Lisitsite


Location: Located 100 m south of village Lisitsite in the area Chin Kaya. The village Lisitsite in on the south shore of dam lake Studen Kladenets.

Description:
A stone wall without soldering surrounds the north accessible part and has size of 200 square meters. At the beginning of the fortress wall is the turbe Shahin Dere, built with stone from the fortress wall. There were no organized excavations and therefore are not registered foundations of buildings and other facilities. Surrounding rocks are crossed by dozens of rock niches, some of which are destroyed by the time. The rocks in which they are cut, are with pretty typical forms like pyramids, mushrooms, etc., formed by the erosion, due to varying density of the rock.
Undisturbed by humans, the rocks are home to many rare representatives of the bird species.

Status:
The site is not archeologically studied.

Access:
The most convenient approach to the village is a rope bridge over the lake Studen Kladenets, which can be reached by car through the village of Shiroko Pole or a train up to Zhelezni Vrati (Iron Gates) station. The fortress is 400 m from the asphalt road.
