The fortress wall was discovered during the demolition of an old house, in the place of which it was planned to build a new one.

At the site, archaeologists find a well-preserved section of the southeastern fortress wall, a rectangular watchtower, a huge building that was used to store grain in the V-VI century. At that time in Sozopol was the largest Black Sea port for grain exports.

The finds are located in the halls of the museum and can be viewed by visitors.
