The general look is from the period of the National Revival, with stone laid narrow streets and beautiful 2 to 4 floors tall houses with high stone walls and quaint tiny courtyards. The Dishlyanova, Shumareva, Pilareva, Gyuzleva, Sarafova and Koyuvi houses are only few of the Kovachevitsa houses with unique architectural and artistic qualities which have attracted many tourists and film projects to the small Rhodope village.
