Kaleto Medieval Fortress, village of Orlov Dolvillage of Orlov Dol in Haskovo, Bulgaria
The medieval fortress Kaleto is located 1.89 km northwest in a straight line from the centre of the village of Orlov Dol. It covers an area of approximately 8-9 decares. Steep cliffs descend from the east, west and south. It is most accessible from the north. The remains of the fortress wall and other buildings are almost buried under an embankment. The south wall of the fortress was destroyed almost completely (for the construction of houses and buildings by the local people). The fortress wall was made of large roughly dressed stones bonded with white mortar and was 2 m wide. A road used to pass along the west and south wall of the fortress.
In terms of terrain, the fortress was built in a strategically well-chosen location.
