Bachkovo Monastery: is the second largest Bulgarian monastery after the Rila monastery. Situated 24 km south of Plovdiv. Found in 11th century, this is one of the oldest monasteries on the Balkan peninsula. The wall paintings are priceless, but the most interesting thing here is the miracle making icon of the Holy Virgin, work of Georgian painter from 1311.
Asenova krepost (The fortress of Asen) is a medieval fortress, 3 km south of the town of Asenovgrad, 20 km from Plovdiv, located on a high rocky ridge. The earliest archaeological findings in the fortress are form Thracian settlements, the area of the fortress being also inhabited during the Ancient Roman and Early Byzantine period. The fortress gained importance in the Middle Ages.
