The church was built in the likeness of the Mother Cathedral of Ani. During city tour we will visit the Black fortress - built in 1834 and is located near the city of Gyumri, Shirak region.

Haghpat village- Sanahin Monastery - Haghpat Monastery - The Cave of Mendz Er - Odzun - Haghpat village
The Lori region is rich in history and heritage, and many attractions are located in the most obscure and mind-blowing places. Odzun is the largest village in Lori, located almost on the edge of the Debed Gorge. The pearl of the village is the Odzun Church, one of the earliest Christian churches in Armenia after the Echmiadzin Cathedral. The Sanahin Monastery and the Haghpat Monastery are attractions not only in the Lori region, but also throughout Armenia due to their architectural and spiritual values and heritage. Both sites are located on a plateau and are about 15 km from each other. The monasteries are a mixture of Byzantine church architecture and Caucasian traditional architecture of about 10-13 centuries. Both monasteries are charming places that are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
