4 km. east of the village High Sredetska Bukovo, is the only functioning monastery in Strandja Mountain - Golyamo "St.. Zhivotopriemen source "also known as" St. Petka ". The monastery is one of the oldest in Bulgaria. According to sources, was built in the XXII century on the ruins of an ancient Thracian sanctuary. Near the monastery are still visible ruins of a Thracian fortress. One of the theories about the location of the famous medieval PARORIAN Monastery and School of Hesychasts argue that it is located here. For this, however, there is no archaeological evidence and remains to this day a guess. What is known for sure is that during the Ottoman rule the monastery activity here and fading Golyamo monastery sank into oblivion and ruin. So by 1876 Legend of the resurrection of the monastery about a resident of the village Kodzha Beech (old name of Big Bukovo) who dreamed of the Mother of God. In the dream she bade to find the site of the ancient monastery. But he did not pay attention to the words and not long after was struck down by a severe illness. Soon after, Mary again dreamed of the patient and again ordered her to find a holy place and wash water from the fountain there. Peasant listened this out and healed, and the story of the healing spring and the old monastery quickly spread. Restoration of the cloisters began in 1873 In 1903, one of the local monks exchanged sheep 1000 acres of fertile land eviction at that time Turks. This vision gives fast results and get rich monastery, built a new farm buildings, large stone convent, which now stands half destroyed several mills. So the arrival of the communist rule and complete indifference to religious monuments. Nearly 50 years monastery buried into oblivion until 1990, when the monk Euthymius took up the restoration of the sanctuary. To date, thanks to him and very patriotic people much of the cloisters was renovated, beautiful garden pleases the eye of every visitor, and every believer can sip from the holy spring of healing water, which is said to be rich in minerals and treat a number of diseases.
