The Thracian mound necropolis in the area of Propada is located near the town of Malko Tarnovo, in the Strandzha Mountain. The necropolis was discovered in 1979 and consists of a group of over 50 mounds dating from the 5th to the 3rd century BC.
Two types of burial structures can be seen here. The first type is called a 'cist' - a simple grave dug into the ground, lined with stone slabs and covered with earth. The second type are four tombs, different in architecture and time of construction. One is a Thracian domed tomb from the 5th-3rd centuries BC, two others are Roman from the 2nd-4th centuries and the fourth is a Roman vaulted tomb built of stone and brick.
It has been declared a cultural monument of national importance. The area around the necropolis is also home to diverse flora and fauna, making it a popular destination for nature and photography enthusiasts.
