Amazing views! They took care of getting to the site, it is now on a convenient alley and stairs. Be careful not to miss "The inscription of Tsar Ivan Assen II" in the rocks. Access to the church is free.

I really liked it, and we did a bonus walk to a monastery. The monastery is nestled in the woods and is magical, but unfortunately we did not find a person to manage it and open it for us to look inside.

Awesome historical landmark, and the view from high on one side to the plain on the other side to the Rhodopes is definitely worth it!
