Medieval church with part of a fortress wall, Krumovgrad
Medieval church with part of a fortress wall, Krumovgrad The church is located in the centre of the town, next to the mosque and nearby the po-lice building. It was constructed with cut out and crumbled stones mixed with white mortar. The preserved part of the wall is around 50-70sm. Vague parts of frescos are preserved on the north-ern wall. During the excavation works 30 years ago north of the church were encountered five children graves with no burial inventory. The chambers are covered with tiles and stones. On the land of Krumovgrad once was located an embattled settlement. In the area of the above described church still can be seen parts of a fortress wall with length of around 20m and width of 2.2m. Òhe fortress was square with length of 150m on each side and circular towers at the corners. Walls with 2m width were found on two places during the excavation works in the 70s. For their construction were used crumbled stones mingled with white mortar. In 1989 was discovered a rectangular interstitial tower. The bases of the stone pillars are preserved at the entrance of the mosque. In the upper layer of the Neolith settlement were also found fragments of medieval pottery. Note: The place is right in the centre of town next to the mosque, but it is unattended.
