The exquisite sculpture of St. George the Victorious is a symbol of the town of Pomorie, which rises to over 5 meters and weighs nearly 3 tons. According to the legend near the sculpture of the saint in the late 17th century settled the Turkish Bey Selim and founded his estate – a farm. It is also known form the legend that he suffered from a severe and incurable disease. One night he dreamed that there was miraculous water in the yard of his house. When he excavated at the place indicated in the dream, Selim Bey found a marble bas-relief of St. George, and below it – a blessed wellspring. With the water from the wellspring he was healed and as a sign of gratitude he built a chapel on this place and together with his whole family accepted the Christian faith. After being widowed, Selim Bey donated his farm to monastery land. The sculpture is placed next to the existing monastery of St. George to watch over the city and the people in it.
