  • 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 in the 9th century is superb. It looks like a fortified monastery of the European middle ages. Ubisa is a rare case built round stone - which gives him tunes of Burgundian village. The monastery consists of three buildings included in the walled enclosure. The covered porch is particularly wide and himself in the form of a small church. Then, the minor Basilica of the 9th 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 acted as residence of the Dean of the monastery. The monks of Ubisa sell delicious and honey, do not hesitate to buy.
