The village is nestled in a beautiful valley, formed by an ancient river, millions of years ago.
In the geological history of the village Basarbovo territory was once covered by the waters of the Black Sea. You can still see remnants of the shells of mussels and other marine life.
Surrounded entirely by natural environment, the area is home to a variety of endangered bird species as well as other animals, traditional to the area. The gorge is picturesque and interesting with its odd formations of the particular weathering of rocks with numerous cave openings and niches. The village has been established as a villa zone throughout the decades, and it is an ideal place for time away from the noise.
Without any doubt the most famous place is the area is the Basarbovo Monastery. Situated in caves, inside the limestone rock, it is the only active “Rock Monastery” in the country that dates back to the Middle Ages.
The most famous inhabitant of the monastery was born in 1685 in the village Basarbovo St. Dimitry Basarbovski who spent his entire life in the cloister. The path that leads to the monastery, passing through beautifully landscaped garden, ends at a well dug by St. Dimitry himself. Local people believe that the water in the well is curative.
Another stone staircase leads to a natural cave where the monk Hrisant was buried - the man who revived the monastery and returned to life in 1937. The cave acts as an ossuary, which is arranged and set up as a museum.
