 Zarenica fortress is located 5 km east of Pavelsko, south of Narechenski Bani, on the left bank of Lutyodol. The fortress dates back to the time of the Thracians. This is evidenced by the preserved walls made of large stone blocks with a height of nearly 2 meters. A two hundred meter vertical rock is located to the east. It is inaccessible to Lutidol. A study of more than 210 meters of safety wall has been established, as well as an inner wall of 111 m with retained walls. There is no water in the fortress, but it is believed that there was a fountain of the Amuy's Pond - the northern side, which however has dried up with time.

There are many legends about the Zarenica fortress. The main claim that the name comes from is related to the prominent fiery Zarue, who faced the Turks. In the midst of the battle, Zarue seems to have surrendered using the mist cover. Upon entering the fortress, the invaders were lured to the other end, from where they descended from the vertical rock into the abyss. The carrots are smelly, and hence the name Lutidol. There is another legend about the name of the fortress. She is in touch with a beautiful girl named Zarena, who is barking at the rocks for unrequited love.
