The fortress has preserved the history and spirit of several eras. It is assumed that this was the first settlement of the Thracian tribe Besi, which lived here more than 2,000 years ago. Peristera was the last Thracian fortress of Besians that Roman legions besieged and captured. The excavations revealed over 300 unique finds. Besides the coins, archaeologists found various pieces of clothing of ancient soldiers, arrowheads, fibulae, 80 pithoi, jewellery. They also found fragments of inscriptions, marble pieces of buildings, clay and glass vessels and many many more.
