Noravank Monastic Complex – Vayots Dzor region of Armenia
Noravank monastery is one of the most spectacular tourist attractions in Armenia. This amazing monastic complex located in the south of Armenia – Vayots Dzor region. Noravank means “New Monastery” in Armenia.
Noravank is a 13th-century Armenian monastery, located 122 km from Yerevan in a narrow gorge made by the Amaghu River, near the city of Yeghegnadzor, Armenia. The gorge is known for its tall, sheer, brick-red cliffs, directly across from the monastery. The monastery is best known for its two-storey Surb Astvatsatsin (Holy Mother of God) church, which grants access to the second floor by way of a narrow stone-made staircase jutting out from the face of building.
