The Belogradchik Fortress, known as the Kaleto, incorporates the rocks into its defenses. The original fortress at this location was built during the time of the Roman Empire, and it was later expanded and reconstructed during the 14th century.
We visited Belogradchik with our friend Iris from Israel, and with my former coworker Ivelina, who lives in the town of Montana, also in northwestern Bulgaria. Below is the town of Belogradchik as viewed from the fortress above.
We viewed the amazing rock formations of the area from the fortress, which entailed climbing up many steep steps and one very vertical ladder. Great work Jodie and Iris!
