Hisarya - Roman Fortress

Hisarya - Roman Fortress
map Hisarya - Roman Fortress

Hisarya (also spelled Hisar, meaning fortress in Turkish) is a small resort town in Bulgaria, in the Plovdiv Region. Located in the outskirts of the Sredna Gora mountain range, it boasts of a very mild climate and over two dozen different mineral springs, which make it a favorite SPA for many Bulgarian and foreign tourists.

Because of these springs, the town was founded thousands of years ago. Some pre-historic remains have been found in what is now the town centre. Later, it became a Thracian settlement and when Thrace fell to the Romans, it was turned into a fortified roman city.

Many Roman ruins are still visible everywhere - public buildings, a small amphitheatre, the barracks of the Roman garrison, the foundations of a couple of the oldest churches in Bulgaria, as well as the best preserved Roman fortress in Bulgaria. The southern gate is known as Kamilite (The Camels), because it had broken in the middle and looked like two camels facing each other, before it was partially restored in the late XX century.

With its many functioning hotels and renovated SPAs, with the preserved historical heiratige, large parks, great sceneries and mild climate, Hissar is one of the best places to spend your time in Bulgaria.
