From Wikipedia, the free encycloped

Samuel’s Fortress (Macedonian: Самуилова тврдина) is a fortress in the old town of Ohrid Macedonia. Today, this historical monument is a major tourist attraction and was heavily restored in 2003 with the addition of entirely new battlements where none had survived.

According to recent excavations by Macedonian archaeologists, it was contended that this fortress was built on the place of an earlier fortification, dated to the 4th century BC, which was probably built by King Philip II of Macedon.[
