    Beautiful church sunk in a Valley rich in vegetation. Old, ancient frescoes, very crowded for a prayer, to light a small candle ... Convenient off the main road between Kutaisi and Tbilisi, with a short detour road.

    This is a small, but still "living" monastery, originally from the 9th century, dedicated to St. George. Noteworthy is the huge, well preserved fresco over the altar area; worth seeing is also the iconostasis. The well-preserved Tower proves that this is also a kl. Fortress was. A cemetery is part of the complex. PS: This site under "Ubisi" occurs elsewhere in the TA, "Ubisa" is correct.

    This small monastery of the ninth century is superb. It looks like a fortified monastery of the European early middle ages. Ubisa is a rare case built of round stone - which gives the air of Burgundian village. The monastery consists of three buildings in the walled enclosure. The covered porch is particularly broad and has himself the form of a small church. Then, the small Basilica of the ninth century. Its interior is particularly valuable. Painted masterpieces are the last supper and the Nativity with a large influence of the byzantine school. The third building is a tower of four floors dating back to 1141, which served as residence of the Dean of the monastery. The monks of Ubisa sell honey delicious and very reputable, do not hesitate to buy.
