    Stop At: Odzun Church, Off H-35 & M-6, Odzun, Alaverdi Armenia

    The first church appeared here in the 6th century. In the 8th century it was reconstructed by Hovhannes III Odznetsi who served as the katholikos between 717 and 728 and was, as his name suggests, from Odzun. This is the time the church got its current form of a pink felsite basilica with three naves, the two side naves being narrow.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Haghpat Monastery, next to Saint Nshan Church, Haghpat 1722 Armenia

    The largest church in the complex, the Cathedral of Surb Nishan, probably begun in 976, was completed in 991 by king Smbat. It is a typical example of tenth century Armenian architecture, its central dome rests on the four imposing pillars of the lateral walls. The outside walls are dotted with triangular recesses. A fresco in the apse depicts Christ Pantocrator. Its donor, the Armenian Prince Khutulukhaga, is depicted in the south transept (a transversal nave intersecting the main nave). The sons of the church's founder, Princes Smbat and Kurike, are shown with Queen Khosravanuysh in a bas-relief on the east gable. Apart from one or two minor restorations carried out in the eleventh and twelfth centuries, the church has retained its original character.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Monastery of Sanahin, Alaverdi 1705 Armenia

    Sanahin Monastery is an Armenian monastery founded in the 10th century in the Lori Province of Armenia.The name Sanahin literally translates from Armenian as "this one is older than that one", presumably representing a claim to having an older monastery than the neighbouring Haghpat Monastery. The two villages and their monasteries are similar in many ways, and lie in plain view of each other on a dissected plateau formation, separated by a deep "crack" formed by a small river flowing into the Debed river.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Akhtala Monastery, Off 1st Raffi St., Akhtala Armenia

    French archaeologist, ethnographer and historian Jacques de Morgan, who was director of the Akhtala copper mines in the 19th century, excavated and discovered antiquities at the Akhtala fortress, including the discovery of antiquities (6000 BC). now it is preserved in Paris.
