Sostra was an ancient stronghold and an important military unit on the ancient Roman road - Via Trayana. Besides the fortress, parts of which are visible today, Sostra was actually a big roadside complex including a village situated outside of the fortress walls. Construction of the fortress began in 147, by the order of Emperor Antoninus Pius, and during its existence has been repeatedly destroyed and rebuilt again. 

In the fortress, many Ancient Greek silver coins, a bronze mask and lots of antique pottery and decorations were found. Mitkulishev Photography Ivan Mandevski © Photo: Svetoslav Todev
