During their occupation of the Eastern Rhodopes, it has created many megalithic sites. Carved into the rocks near the village Fotinovo forms like shells of turtles. Just hence the name of the sanctuary. Rock turtles are numerous, but three of the forms vary. From the fourth form are only grooves that portray the head and flippers of the turtle.
