Restoration Begins on Isar Fortress Stone Wall

Expert teams from the Stip Museum and Institute for conservation of historical and cultural monuments have begun work on the north-­eastern side of the stone wall on the Isar fortress.

This is the fourth section of the 210 meters long section of the wall of the fortress that is being restored. The Isar fortress dates from between the 4th and 6th century.

The project, supported by the Culture Ministry, has already led to the discovery of some valuable archaeological finds, such as glass and metal kilns.

The City of Stip expects that, once the restoration is finished, the fortress will become a major draw for tourists.

 It's one of the most important historic locations in Stip that is being protected and restored, together with the religious shrine found at the Bargala site and the icons from the Accession of Virgin Mary church.
