  • Inserted into the large complex Museum of the memorial of the genocide that occurred in the second decade of the 20th century, especially in 1915. The Moslem Turks of the Ottoman Empire, tried to destroy and annihilate the Armenian people, the first people who embraced Catholicism in the 4th century and where were built in quantity the first monasteries, convents and churches. The Museum recounts the persecution and death of about 2 million of Armenians who were taken to the desert and abandoned to hunger and thirst to death. The Museum is underground. The complex part is still the great Obelisk, the large Dome where bursts from the ground the eternal fire and a small place where are buried soldiers killed in the recent war and current, which crashes against Azerbaijan, the enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh
