  • As said in other reviews is hard to evaluate St. location. This is a whole complex of temples from 4 to 11 centuries a monastery. Preserved monastic Winery. Because the monastery is situated on a mountain that offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Alazani Valley!

  • About ascent to the monastery is written quite a few. If you do not have regular physical training, even and don't try to overpower him on foot. Descent in good pace took 20 minutes, we have the time the way up we were not observed, but in vain. Those who are travelling on a minibus, as astronauts the most part of the road lie with your back on the seat, his feet above his head, and all this under the natuzhnoe engine howl. Halfway there is an observation deck, well visible on the field at the bottom of the Foundation any structures-that was all that remained of in 2-1 et. BC city of Nekresi. The monastery was founded in the 6th century by one of the Assyrian fathers, ABO Nekresskim. Five have survived to our time of buildings:-shrine of the Virgin of the 8th-century interesting relics of Saints, including the evangelists Matthew and Luke, frescoes and wooden chairs inside the so-called "stasidii"-Tower of the 15TH century, part of the Palace of the Bishop with Marani, Temple of IV century, seemingly, is the most ancient Christian monument in Georgia, quite small, literally 5 people, khod in u, there are human bones -another temple 9th century with the Gallery around. With the monastic walls offer a panorama of the Alazani Valley surrounded by mountains. At the bottom left of the monastery gate is one "secret" place-ground near the river. There is a column and tables with sunshades: you can arrange your picnic or to others to join.
