The Forming
At the end of Paleozoic Era, about 230 million years ago, in this region are beeing deposited marine rocks. Later, they were flooded by the see, ao the bottom of which was deposited sand, gravel and clay. Over time, these materials were connected by sandy-clay solder. Therefore were formed conglomerates and sandstones. The reddish color is due to iron oxides and hydroxides. As a result of the complex tectonic cycle, folded, and because of droughts, Belogradchik region has entered into a large fissure. Under the influence of the water, winds and due to temperature fluctuations in these parts were destroyed limestones becoming cracking conglomerates.
So for millions of years, nature has created sculptures in stone with the forms of mythical creatures, people, animals and birds. Into sandstone and limestone were formed, more than 100 caves. These columns of rock have formed a natural fortress, whose defensive potential has been exploited since ancient times.

Rock legends

Early each morning monastery bells invited the nuns to pray to God. The youngest ofthese nuns, Vitinia could not hide under the cassock her beauty. The rumor about the beauty of vitinia is spread all over the Roman Empire. When people had the right to visit the monasteries, Vitinia met with the Roman Antonio. This one had long hidden his love for the nun. But after a year, the fruit of their love is revealed. From their love a child was born. Vitinia was discovered and faced the strict judgment of the nuns. These decided to curse her and also expelled her and her child from the convent. At that moment, on the hill came Antonio on his white horse, and asked the nuns not to expelle Vitinia from the convent. And a miracle happened. Suddenly a storm beganthunders fell, the earth was shaken. The ruins of the monastery and everything was turned to stone – Rider, Monks and Vitinia, which became Madonna with the Child in her arms.
