The area around the Thracian sanctuary is rich with many archeological sites coming from many ages across time. The earliest known materials are from the early Bronze Age, after which come those from the early Iron Age, including the clusters of dolmens located near the sanctuary. Proof of occupation are found from the Hellenistic period, the late Antiquity, the Middle Ages and into the Ottoman period. The future research planned for some of them will bring light to the details about them, their relationship with the sanctuary and its function until the fourth century AD.
Heading from the megalithic complex via marked hiking trails one can reach several sites and dolmens of great import, among which is the so-called Valchanovo Kale, located around 2800 m west from Begliktash. There are found the remains of a fortress that has been found to have functioned through the years from the early Bronze Age all the way to the late Ottoman period. There is a probability that for a time it served as the fortified home of the high priest who served the sanctuary.
Along the mountain ridge north of the fortress one can reach St. Dimitar Cape and the mouth of the Ropotamo river. Along the trail are located many megalithic structures resembling various zoomorphic and anthropomorphic figures, as well hypothesized cultish locations which are yet to be researched and proven to be of scientific importance.
St. Dimitar Cape houses a necropol that is suggested to be dated somewhere between the beginning of the Bronze Age and the late Antiquity. On the very tip of the cape, right above the shore and the river’s mouth, have been found the ruins of a Christian temple (likely a small church or basilica) that are soon to be the object of scientific research.
Underwater archaeological research is carried out periodically in the area around the mouth of Ropotamo river. From them we have information that on the then coast around the river mouth was built a settlement at the earliest during the Copper Age, to the early Bronze Age, and later during the Ottoman period. There are some suggestions for the existence of a market port all the way during the Antiquity.
Around 1400 m north of the Begliktash sanctuary, right at the beach, is the St. Paraskeva church, located at the coast of the bay of the same name, north of Primorsko. Archaeological research there gives us the opportunity to study in detail the architectural plan and the building periods of the medieval church. It has one nave in the shape of a cross, with a cross-dome roof. Inside are found various archaeological materials and the remains of two burials date it in the period from the 11th to the 17th century, when it was burned down by ottoman turks. Around the church are the remains of various other buildings and a water-gathering pool.
Southeast of Begliktash, along another hiking trail, is the Thracian fortress at Maslen Cape, from the late Antiquity. What this fortress was used for is yet unknown, as the existence of a military base in the area limits any possible archaeological studies.
From various authors that lived during the Antiquity, we have information about the Thracians and the coastal piracy they surely took part in. The location fits the qualities needed for the carrying of such — illegal even at those times — activities. It is known that on its southern side there was a small dock for the anchoring of ships.
