Stopped enroute to Garni and Gephard. The views were nice and the Arch is impressive, but I would have dearly loved to know WHY the arch is there and exactly WHO Charents is.

Located conveniently on the road to Garni, you won't miss this place. Described as the best place to watch Mt. Ararat, it is indeed one of the best. What makes it even more beautiful is that Mt. Ararat (as a backdrop) will be in a...More

This is may be the most appropriate point to have nice view to Ararat mountain. Charent's Arch actually quite close to Yerevan, around 10 km.

You will find Charent's Arch along the road to Geghard & Garni. The arch was built in 1957 and itself is not very impressive. On a clear day, the view is redeeming, offering sights all the way to Mount Ararat. The arch is dedicated to...More
