Visit to the beautiful monastery of Noravank (XIII - XIV century) - a masterpiece of Armenian architecture. Then we will see Zorats Karer (Karaundz), where there are famous menhirs (partially processed stones).

This unique place is called Stonehenge Armenian and dates back to 6000 BC. Arrival in Goris, accommodation at the hotel.
