“Peristera” Fortress – Peshtera

The name of the fortress comes from Greek and means “pigeon”. It is a fortress with three fortress walls and six defensive towers located on the innermost fortress wall, according to archaeologists, dating back to the 4th century AD, which existed until at least the 7th century BC. Archaeologists believe that an ancient Thracian sanctuary probably existed in the same place.
