We leave for the Ararat valley to the Khor Virap monastery. All the way we will be accompanied by vineyards and orchards. The monastery was built on the site where, for about 13 years, in a deep pit, the future first Catholicos of Armenians Gregory the Illuminator, sentenced to death, sat. The building dates back to the 8th century. The complex also has the Church of the Holy Virgin, built in the 17th century. Nearby is the citadel of one of the former capitals of Armenia, the city of Artashat. A beautiful view of the nearby Biblical Mount Ararat can be enjoyed from the observation deck.

Visit to Areni-1 cave or Bird's grotto. In 2007, archaeological excavations began in this cave, which led to the conclusion that civilization in Armenia originated 800 years earlier than scientists had previously believed. Here was discovered a leather shoe made from a single piece of leather, dating back to 36-33 centuries BC. And the main thing is that the finds became proof that it was on the territory of Armenia that winemaking originated and that wine was produced on an industrial scale in this cave.
Lunch and wine tasting will be at a private winery.
Meeting the owners of the winery and a barbecue master class will further enhance your excursion.

We continue our excursion to the beautiful Noravank canyon and the unusual red mountains. The nature of these places makes you have time to look at all sides with admiring eyes, because one wonderful landscape is replaced by another. Finally, we drive up to the Noravank monastery, which is the adornment of this gorge. The complex, like most monasteries in Armenia, harmoniously fits into the surrounding nature. The monastery complex begins to be built on the site of an older one in honor of the victory over the Seljuk Turks. The pearl of Noravank is the Church of the Holy Mother of God built in 1339 by the architect Momik.

Driving through the territory with beautiful landscapes of Armenia, we head towards the historical monument, which is located at an altitude of 2300 m - the unique castle-fortress Amberd. The history of its construction in the 7th century is connected with the famous Kamsarakan family, who for centuries built powerful monasteries and fortresses. The location of Amberd captivates the eye both by the very forms of the fortress and the surrounding Ararat valley stretching far below, with its majestic crown, Mount Ararat. The mountains Aragats and Araler are also superbly viewed from here. Nearby is the 11th century Vahramashen church, which is practically preserved in its original form. During the reign of the royal family of Bagratuni, the fortress turned into a powerful defensive structure, which protected the approaches to the then capital of Armenia - the city of Ani. In the XIV century, by the troops of Tamerlane, the Amberd castle was captured and burned, however, even today it admires the people who visit it.

The next point of visit will be the guest house "Tonatsuyts" in the village of Byurakan.
