Devetashka cave (Lovech Province, Bulgaria)


The Devetashka cave is also known as Maarata or Oknata for its seven different-sized holes in the ceiling, through which sunlight penetrates and illuminates the central hall and part of its two fields. The studies showed that the Devetashka cave used to be inhabited during almost every historical era. The earliest traces of human presence date back to the middle of the Early Stone Age before about 70,000 years BC.
