Agushevi konatsi

The Agushevi konatzi fortress is situated in the small village of Mogilitza, only 25 km away from the town of Smolyan, in the beautiful and mysterious Rhodopi mountain. “Konak” is a Turkish word and means big palace, big house. The Agushevi Konatzi represents a unique medieval feudal castle, consisting of a number of buildings with different functions, many yards, halls, corridors, tunnels, and hiding places. It is the only one of its kind on the Balkan peninsula. It was built in the middle of the 19th century by Bulgarian masters for the Turkish feudal Agush Aga and his three sons, who most probably used it as their summer residence. The “konak” is surrounded by a thick wall, equipped with a number of defence towers. One of the external towers is very interesting and is the only one of its kind in the whole Rhodopi mountain. It is vary tall, wider in its tallest part and has a number of windows, just like a kiosk. All the external walls and eaves are decorated with different paintings.
