‘Prilep - Markovi Kuli’


This is a continuation of my previous photo about Markovi Kuli or the Towers of Marko.
Now mainly with views of the various ruins on the hill and no longer the view of the city of Prilep.
The landscape with large boulders also appealed to me.

Frankly, I had no preference for the main photo. I consider these pictures as a whole about Markovi Kuli and hope that those who are interested in it also look at the four pictures in the WS.
Perhaps you have a preference for one…

King Marko was a Macedonian king who died in 1395 fighting the Turks.
My guidebook (The Bradt Travel Guide) mentions that archaeological findings show that parts of the fortress date back to the Iron Age, the 3rd and 4th centuries BC and later periods during the Ottoman Empire.
However, most of what remains to be seen today is from medieval times.
