Personally, I was not too impressed with this site. I found the fortress or what was left of it was not photogenic but the church was from the outside. Not much to see inside. You do have nice views overlooking the valley. They charge four...More

Costs 4 leva to get in and it's worth every penny. It's got 223 stairs but it won't cause much of a strain. You get to see the beautiful mountains and the castle, there isn't much of a history boards in English but it's still...More

This fortress set in the mountains is amazing with spectacular views. There is a small old chapel there you can enter but it is mainly the views which will stun you!

Beautiful spot, with an amazing view however it is a bit difficult to visit without a car so its not for every traveler.

Located near Plovdiv,in Asenovgrad, the fortress is a must. It's a beautiful place. We stopped there on our way to the Bachkovo Monastery. You can park uphill, near the fortress. The parking costs 1,5 lv. You should definitely have a comfortable pair of shoes.
