Ранновизантийска и средновековна крепост Мисионис / Крумово кале на 7.3 км. от гр. Търговище, по пътя за Омуртаг, до началото на Дервишкия проход, върху височина на Преславската планина. На изток има вход, фланкиран от две кули. Има неправилна форма на площ от 25 дка, а градът се е разпростирал на повече от 150 дка. Крепостния зид в лицевата част е иззидан от каменни блокчета, а вътрешността е блокаж от ломени камъни. Крепостта е строена по времето на Юстиниан І в края на V век, като част от отбранителната система на Византия. Целта й е била да спира набезите на славяни, прабългари и готи. Преди образуването на българската държава крепостта е разрушена през VІ век. В края на ІХ век върху руините възниква българско селище с ранносредновековни землянки. През ХІІ - ХІV век крепостната стена е изградена отново от ломени камъни и хоросан с дървени греди като част от отбранителна система на столицата Търново. Външния град е разположен северно от крепостта. Мисионис е една от трите крепости пазили прохода.
