The ancient fortress of Cape St. Atanas in Byala, Varna region, Bulgaria.
How do you feel the idea of going down the streets of an ancient city, looking at a winery, a bath and a church for more than 1500 years, all situated on the edge of a cliff on the very beach?
Open for visitors in May 2014, a late antique fortress at Cape St Atanas in Byala is different from most of the castles you’ve seen.
During the excavations, three ancient wineries, a public bath, ceramic pottery furnishings, a church complex, entire streets and various buildings were discovered.
The most impressive will be the way this ancient harbor town, once hidden half a meter below ground, has been restored.
Authentic stone slabs and buildings are complemented by painted scenes from the old life of the place – to get an idea of the days and feasts of our ancient ancestors.
