Ancient fortresses and monasteries of Christian sects dating from the 10th to 14th centuries dot the valley, and were also carved into the limestone outcrops. The impressive cave monastery was carved into the rock in the 13th century by Orthodox monks, and was inhabited by the monks until the 18th century. Walk around this ancient site and take in the atmosphere of solemnity, climb the hill and the cliffs, and survey the valley below you.

  • In the new monastery is experiencing a Pope young man who manages everything from animals to church services at the souvenir shop (at least in bad season when it was me), his kindness is at least questionable. We asked after the visit to the Church to be able to access the store there was denied. We were Catholics could not have comprehended it considers sacred objects ... questionable. The former monastery is quite another. The sacredness of the place captures your soul. There are no words should be visited and are offered prayers. Amazing
