Rock tombs, Potochnica village
Rock tombs, Potochnica village An elongated hill of white rocks is located around 200m on the left bank of Krumovitza river before it flows into Arda river and nearby the abandoned quarry for volcanic tuffa. Two rock tombs are cut out on the slope of that hill. The first one is better preserved and its entrance faces south-west. Its total length is 3.1m and has a trapezoid vertical section with an aperture above. The second tomb is situated 10m southwest of the first one. Some well preserved rock niches could be seen around. It is of the same type as the first one but only its lower part is preserved. Its entrance faces south-southeast and is preceded by a long corridor cut in the rock. The remains of a Thracian settlement could be seen around the tombs. Note: A good cart road passes by the tombs. The place is suitable for tourism.
