Environmentalists from the Facebook group "Save Rupite" have gathered to protest against intentions for construction in the unique territory of Rupite known for its healing mineral springs and natural diversity, BNR reported. Rupite is located near the town of Petrich in south-western Bulgaria.

The protest took place next to a fenced plot of 12 decares, on which, after the completion of the ongoing archeological excavations, the construction of over 10 guest houses, a parking lot and other buildings is planned to begin. 

The locality is also famous for being in close proximity to the temple of the late famous Bulgarian clairvoyant Vanga.
