Pine stone represents a truly impressive rock formed by erosion for millions of years. Although it is part of the Belogradchik rocks, Borov stone is distinguished by its majestic dimensions – 113 m height, 180 m long and 120 m wide. The rock is divided into two, the eastern part being larger in area and height. The western is lower and is marked by a tapering tail.
The name of the rock has since ancient times been derived from the pines on its ridge, which have been on its top it for countless years. From these pines comes the name of the village of Borovitsa.

The “Red Church” near the village of Borovitsa is distinguished by a unique structure and architecture, built entirely of red stone, cut from the local rocks, the temple was built by Italian masters and local stonemasons in 1866. The name of the church is the Holy Trinity and it is located under the majestic Pine Stone.
