The Rhodopes mountains have rich cultural heritage, including ancient Thracian sites, medieval castles, churches, monasteries. Picturesque villages with traditional Bulgarian architecture from the 18th and 19th centuries. Also the mountain range gives its name to the terrestrial ecoregion Rodope montane.
