  • In this complex is the Church where you host your body of the patron saint of Georgia, namely Saint Nino. It is immersed in a pleasant environment with lots of greenery well groomed and an orchard. Next to the historic church is under construction a new much larger church. The complex is just over 2 km from the town of Sighnaghi.
