We knew we were getting close to the famous Tomb of Orpheus at Tatul southern Bulgaria and were duly greeted by the first sign which is located just to the side of a Bulgarian cafe named Tatul! The Tatul tomb is very well signposted and unlike the castle at Ustra we found it very easily. Over the next few pages you can see how they are working very hard at Tatul to renovate the route to the ancient tomb. Currently the path is suitable for very agile mountain goats and people wearing rubber boots! Great care was being taken to preserve the surrounding environment and trees while creating a safe passage for people to view the tomb. This conservation and restoration of the Sanctuary of Orpheus at Tatul is co-financed by the European Union and Republic of Bulgaria
