Belitsa[1][2] (Bulgarian: Белица) is a village (село) in southwestern Bulgaria, located in the Ihtiman Municipality of the Sofia Province.[1]

Belitsa is placed in the western parts of the Sredna Gora mountain. The village was formed in 2001 with the unification of the villages Sredishtna (Средищна), Suevtsi (Суевци) and Grozdyovtsi (Гроздьовци).[3] It is situated at 13 to the west of Poibrene on one of the roads between the capital Sofia and the town of Panagyurishte.
