Full description
This tour takes you to explore one of the most beautiful gorges in Armenia: the Gorge of Qasakh River, famous for its beautiful churches standing right on the cliff’s edge. Both monastic complexes included in this daily tour date back to the 13th Century, and were built by the same noble family. Visit Saghmosavank, which possesses a particular charm - as you will discover. The monastery of Hovhannavank is about 5 km 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. On the way, you will stop at the Alley of the Alphabet, where you will be given the chance to find the first letter of your name and 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.
