Perperikon, ancient Bulgarian language (Перперикон, Greek: Περπερικον) is an ancient Thracian city built on rocky hills at 470 m high in eastern Rhodopes, 15 km north of the city of Kardzhali [1]

According to archaeological investigations, the first life traces in Perperikon 6 000 years ago, call the Copper Stone. Later, during the Late Bronze Age and the Early Iron Age, the city became a magnificent center of worship. [2]
