O que esperar

This day trip takes you to explore one of the most beautiful gorges of Armenia: the Gorge of Qasakh River, famous for its beautiful churches standing on cliff edges. Both monastic complexes included in this daily tour date back to the 13th century and were built by the same noble family.

The monastery of Hovhannavank is about 5km south from Saghmosavank. The complex includes the 4th century basilica church of St. John the Baptist, which was built by Gregory the Illuminator himself on the relics of St. John the Baptist, and the main church of St. Karapet (St. John’s other name). It is also famous for its tympanum, which is engraved according to the parable of the Wise and Stupid Virgins from the book of Matthew.

Saghmosavank is translated as the monastery of psalms. According to the legend, the psalm singing of Gregory the Illuminator was heard for several miles, when he asserted in the caves underneath the church. It was also famous for its medieval manuscripts and book-repository. Although quite modest compared to Hovhannavank (which is considered one of the most beautiful churches in Armenia), Saghmosavank possesses a particular charm.

You will have a short stop at the Alley of the Alphabet, where you will be given the chance to find the first letter of your name and even snap a picture with it. Armenian is not only a very old language, but it is also an independent branch of the Indo-European languages, making it unlike any other tongue in the world.

Amberd fortress is located on the slopes of Mount Aragats – the highest peak in Armenia. In the 13th century, the Zakaryan noble family started the liberation of Armenia from the Seljuk Turks from this very fortress. The name “Amberd” originates from the fact that the fortress is located at the altitude of 2300m above the sea level, translating as “Fortress in the Clouds”.

The last spot is Proshyan Wine Factory, where the visitors can taste and purchase wine right from the factory.
