Where is it situated
The archaeological complex of Perperikon is situated in the Eastern Rhodopes, 19 km to the north-east of Kardzhali town, close to Gorna krepost village. If you come from the north, in Chernoochene (en route from Haskovo to Kardzhali) head east towards Pryapovets, Draganovo, Tri mogili and Stremovo villages. There is a crossing a kilometre after the last one; turn on the right there. Another crossing comes in a while; this time turn on the left. Pass the village of Gorna krepost. The turn toward Perperikon is 1.5 km to the south of it.
In the Late Bronze and Early Iron Age (XVIII – VI c. B.C.) Perperikon transformed into an impressive cult center. Between the end of the era before Christ and the first centuries of anno domini era, the town completed its outer appearance, comprising of a fortress on the top of the hill, Acropolis, palace-sanctuary and northern and southern suburbs. Christianity in the Rhodopes started spreading from Perperikon at the end of IV c. In the Middle ages Perperikon remained an important administrative centre.
