Khor Virap & Noravank Monasteries
A day dedicated to exploration of Southern Armenia combining the magic of Armenia’s finest medieval architecture with stunning landscapes. The first stop of our trip is Khor Virap, the most sacred pilgrimage destination in Armenia not only because it’s the only place in Armenia where you’ll get the best view of the biblical Mount Ararat within Armenian borders, but this is where St. Gregory the Illuminator was imprisoned for 13 years. Our next stop is the Monastery of Noravank, an architectural gemstone nestled among brick-red cliffs, just above a deep gorge. We’ll drive to Areni village, the cradle of viticulture! This is where world’s oldest winery has been found (6100years old)! Winery tour and wine tasting. Drive back to Yerevan.
