Overview

Khor Virap - an architectural monument, on the left side of the Araks River, built on the monastery-fortress of the XVII century, on one of the hills of the historic Artashat town. He was one of the prominent Armenian pilgrims, associated with Grigor the Illuminator. According to Agatangeghos, Trdat III, the Great, during the persecutions of Christians, Gregory the Illuminator was thrown into the enclosure of Artashat's Royal Prison, where the Illuminator spent about 15 years. The Illuminator, after getting out of the Khor Virap, received the king's support, made Christianity a state religion.
Areni village - a centennial center of Armenian winemaking. Here you can try a wide variety of wines, including the Areni grapes made of them. Wine can be tasted both in wine-makers and in the hospitable villa's home.
Monastery complex of Noravank - a complex of monuments located in Vayots Dzor region, dating back to the XIII-XIV centuries. Noravank is known not only as medieval spiritual center of Syunik, but also surrounded by unique and mysterious red rocks.

    "Most visited tourists in Armenia"

    Been here last January 2, 2018
    Surrounded by vineyards and plain pasture land.
    You can see the border between Turkey and Armenia and of course the stunning beauty of Mount Ararat.
    It was called Khor Virap meaning deep and bottom most pit, where Gregory the Illuminator imprisoned for more or less 14 years.
    This monastery is one of the most visited by tourists.
    Another beautiful monastery in Armenia....
