The Rhodopes sanctuary where the tomb of mythical Orpheus is supposed to be located awoke Friday with serious damages in the rock.

The guard of the site found that a 20cm-long part of the rock was torn out and immediately alarmed police.

According to an initial version, a lightening might have caused the damage, as the same night there was a storm.

However, police investigates a possible foray on the ancient sanctuary serving as a magnate for many people believing a gold treasure lies beneath the rock.

Archeologists have repeatedly called to official institutions and donors to help for the survival of the unique megalith complex, otherwise unprotected it would turn into ruins.

During last summer's torrential rains, the construction, which is made of limestone, showed up first signs of irreparable damages.

It is believed the sanctuary of Tatul flourished for more than two thousand years in ancient times. It is probably the largest temple in the area, only second after the nearby sanctuary of Dionysus in Perperikon.

Those do not really look like somebody was trying to break in. Perhaps it was kids committing random and senseless vandalism.
