Perperikon is the site of an ancient Thracian city in the south west of Bulgaria, where human activity goes back a mind boggling 7,000 years. Archaeologists working at the top of this high, rocky hill have uncovered a giant palace, temples, an ancient church and what is thought to be the temple of Dionysus. Work is being carried out to make the area accessible for tourists, including constructing a paved path up the very steep hill. We enjoyed no such luxury and had to leap, goat-like, from rock to rock – passing the snoozing workers on the way. Not a bad view from this guy’s bedroom, though, is it?
