On a small mound over a confluence of two streams, Amberd Fortress stands as a witness to centuries of turbulent history. A major defensive point for Armenian rulers--standing 2,300 m (7,545 ft) above sea level--the fortress was built in Roman times and expanded on several occasions between 11th and 13th centuries. Archeological excavations discovered the site was previously occupied by a Stone Age settlement and a Bronze Age fortification. See the gates, thick walls, and imposing towers, and explore the remains of a church, chapel, and bathhouse--all of which support the theory that the edifice once served as a summer palace.

Красивое место. Красивый вид на горы и на крепость. Рядом с крепостью храм. Который также не оставляет равнодушным. more »A beautiful place. Beautiful mountain and Castle. Next to the fortress Temple. That also does not leave indifferent.
Az Aragatsról visszafelé egy rövid megállót megér. Az erőd és a kis templom egy látványos szurdok peremére épült. more »The Aragatsról on a short break is worth. The Fort and the small church built on the edge of a spectacular Gorge.
