Itinerary

Khor Virap Monastery

Drive through the pretty Ararat Valley to the 4th-century monastery Khor Virap, where you will enjoy the closest view of Mt. Ararat. The endless vineyards and apricot trees will give you an impression that you are in fact driving to the spot where everything started -” The Cradle of Civilization”. As the first  Sunbeams start to spread behind the mountain, you take your steps up to Khor Virap monastery. By the way, “Khor Virap” means “deep dungeon”, where the first Armenian Catholicos Gregory the Illuminator was imprisoned for 13 years before spreading Christianity in the 4th in Armenia.

Gndevank Monastery

Afterwards, drive to Gndevank. It is a 10th-century Armenian monastery in the Vayots Dzor Region. As the founder of this monastery Princess Sephia said: “Vayots Dzor was a ring without a jewel but I built this monastery as the jewel for the ring”. So, Gndevank is the jewel of this region. It is in all probability an example of the more ancient edifices of its kind bequeathed by Armenian architecture. The monastery is surrounded with high walls: in the southern and western parts of the precincts are rows of domestic buildings for the use of the monks.
