Medieval city-fortress Lori (Lori berd) was founded in XI century. It is located at the intersection of Lori's picturesque gorges and the two old bridges are connecting it with the outside world. One of them was completely repaired and only one part is kept from the other one. Regardless the fact that the fortress was cruelly destroyed, some parts of it, including the bathrooms and the chapel-mausoleum were kept. There are unique murals found in the residential areas of the fortress which, if compared to the other contemporary paintings, are in secular manner. The household and military possessions, found during the archeological excavations, tell a lot about its history and culture. There are different tools, weapons, jewelry, different vessels made of clay, glass or stone found in the fortress. They serve as a historical proof for different kinds of handicrafts being well developed in Lori.
