Mamá en Bulgaria: Asenova Krepost – the spectacular fortress of Assen
Here’s the surprise – practice your skills to understand Spanish and check out Marta’s impressions on this Bulgarian landmark!
Asenova Krepost is a wonderful medieval fortress located in the heart of Rhodope montains, just 3 km away from the city of Assenovgrad. It was built in the 9th century, but after being destroyed, tsar Assen rebuilt it in 1231 and from then on it took his name. Nowadays the fortress is almost completely destroyed, but the church of St. Mary of Petrich is still standing, and even functions as a regular orthodox church. The views from the top are just amazing, this place is definitely worth a visit.
