The megalithic sites of the Rhodope
The pyramid of Tatarevo is located in the Eastern Rhodope.
The neighbouring sites
The pyramid of Tatarevo is surrounded by several megalithic sites on the surrounding hills. There is also a high density of megalithic sites in the Eastern Rhodope region. Many of these sites have not yet been visited and added to the inventory. Some are already inventorised:
- Dolni Glavanak
- Beli Plast
Like other sites in the Eastern Rhodope the pyramid and megaliths of Tatarevo are highly eroded.
Design of the pyramid
Specific rock formations
Across from the main pyramid there is a pyramidal formation with lines of megaliths..
The lines of megaliths are aligned North-East to South-West.
The size of stones
The lines of megaliths are 10 metres high and over 100 metres long.
Periods of construction
Due to the heavy erosion patterns it is difficult to date the site. But the pyramid and the lines of megaliths by their size probably point to the Lemurian epoch.
Type of stone
The stone in Tatarevo is made from a gritty quartz cement.
