Cult complex, Lisicite village
Cult complex, Lisicite village Lisicite village is located on the right bank of Studen kladenec dam. The best way to reach it is along the suspension bridge in the narrowest part of the dam in the area of Shiroko pole village and under “Monyak” fortress. Around 200m south of the village in the area called Chit Kaya (“chit” – wall and “kaya” - stone) begins the wall of a Thracian fortress from 4th – 1st century B.C. It bars the passable north side and was built with not soldered stones. The complex encompasses area of 1200m2. There are no registered buildings or facilities as no organized excavations were made there. The grown up trees and bushes make the wall hard to see. In the surrounding rocks are cut out many rock niches some of which destroyed through the years. The remains of altars, grooves, channels and other facilities can be seen, as well as fragments of pottery. The rock complex impresses with the unique shapes resembling pyramids, mushrooms, figures of animals and people. The hill reveals a wonderful view to Studen kladenec dam, the city of Kardzhali and the outflow of Varbica river. Many rare birds inhabit undisturbed the rocks in the complex. Note: The place is suitable for tourism, but with no direct access with a car. The way to it is very beautiful and passes through the suspension bridge.
