Bracigovo was one of the centres of the April 1876 uprising against Turkish occupation, led here by Vasil Pleteškov (1845-1876), a hero and martyr to the cause. The upper part of the village comprises a harmonious group of houses in the National Awakening style, surrounding "chain well" square (Sindžirli burnar, 1816). Inside the nearby little church, note the fine vaulting and traces of murals.
