Pyramids are everywhere in Melnik but the best are on the way to Rozhen. Also good view from the Despot Fortress.

Those pyramids are really extraordinary and beautiful to see, especially when they are illuminated by the sun. In my opinion they are something that one can not see everywhere and are a must see in that region.

You can see the pyramids only a few kms from Melnik if you head to Rozhen monastery using a marked path from Melnik. A rather demanding climbing up to the ridge, where you have a nice view of many of the pyramids. Worth the effort.
