The rocks’ inaccessibility is probably the reason for existance of a fortress here since ancient times. The cape protrudes into the sea for some 2 km and is practically inaccessible from three sides. The earliest dwellings on the cape date back to 4 century B.C. when the region was inhabited by the Terizi Thracian tribe, hence the name Tirizis. The name Kalikra, which means “a beautiful cape” was first mentioned in 13-14 century AD. In 14 century the Bulgarian state was divided into three separate states, Kalikra became capital of the easternmost part and was established as a big international harbor.
