You will passed-by this stunning and exquisite beautiful attraction on the road before reaching the Noravank Monastery. Surrounded by amazing works of arts brought by nature. If possible, asked your driver to have a break and have a picture for awhile.

Amazing scenery and architecture. This unique vank has stairs to climb in order to reach the main chapel. The stone blends into the backdrop and you will find many striking photo ops.

What a great drive. Sadly we were in a tour bus and not a convertible! The monastery here too is incredible and also some wine tasting very close by. Great day trip from Yerevan
