This fortress is about a 30min drive from Plovdiv and is well worth the trip. The church is well-preserved and is stunning against the mountain backdrop. And there is parking right next to the entrance so no need to hike up the steep, winding road.

The short walk from central Plovdiv up to Asen's Fortress is the perfect way to get your bearings in the city. It takes you through the old town, and all its numerous tourist opportunities for souvenirs, tours and shows, before emerging onto the hill top. The views are really good, giving you a good feel for the layout of the city. There are plenty of old ruins as well, making for some really nice photos while also exposing you to just one of the numerous historical sites in the area.

The ancient fortress of Plovdiv is perched upon a hilltop that signals the end of the historic part of the city, with wonderful views that overlook the orange tiled roofs of the city centre’s buildings. Not a lot has been done to preserve the fortress, which is now basically just a collection of broken rocks, serving more as an excellent viewpoint. However, the views from here are superb, especially at sunset.
