The ancient fort crowned with a rock-hewn tomb near Momchilgrad, in the eastern Rhodope, has been overshadowed by nearby Perperikon, which is significantly larger.
Nonetheless it is a major regional tourist attraction. In recent years some historians and the media have dubbed it "Orpheus's sanctuary" or even "Orpheus's grave," referring to the mythical musician and singer who is reported to have rambled the area about 3,000 years ago. The steep rock on which the tomb is perched offers superb vistas across the valley and hills, creating an out-of-this-world feeling. Not for the vertiginous.
