Rock tomb, Veslec quarter in Benkovci village
Rock tomb, Veslec quarter in Benkovci village Local people call it “The pierced stone”. It is located on the right side of the main road, close to the turnoff for Maglene village around 300m from the last house of Veslec quarter. The vault was additionally drilled and thus a passa-geway was made. People believe in the healing power of the place and often visit it looking for pain relieving cure. After they pass through the hole three times, they leave a piece of their cloth-ing on the nearby tree, hoping to leave the disease there as well. The tomb had been robbed since ancient times. Note: The place is relatively close to the main road, but it is better to ask local people for directions.
