Prosek (Macedonian alphabet: Просек), also known as Stenae (in Greek Στεναί narrow), is an archaeological site located in the Demir Kapija Canyon, in the Republic of Macedonia. This ancient settlement had an excellent strategical and war position. It was discovered in 1948. Some things that have been found here include four towers still standing today, many ceramic objects, jewellery, coins, and a few acropoli and necropolis.
