Just one of the many magnificent monasteries in Armenia, which are usually perched on mountain tops. The view is breath taking. Worth a visit!

I've spent 10 days cavorting all over Armenia, and in my opinion, Noravank is the absolute highlight of iconic attractions. Surrounded by dramatic brick-red cliffs, this complex of churches, chapel and khachkars stands head and shoulders above all other monasteries and churches. It is just mind-blowing beautiful and I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I was extremely lucky to visit during a brilliant day, with steel-blue sky, contrasting the splendid monuments against the red and blue. Perfect combination of important history and stunning nature. Allow yourself enough time, don't rush and enjoy !

An amazing trip with unforgettable views! Everything was perfectly organised by my agency YERANI Travel! Our guide Jasmine was a real professional and we learned a lot about Armenia's past and present. Special thanks to her!
Definitely will continue using the services of YERANI Travel for my next visits to Armenia.

Noravank Monastery is a must see place to visit in Armenia. The route to the place is scenic. It is the religious site an ancient masterpiece but it is also really renowned because of the location and scenery surrounding it.

The road to Noravank Monastery is scenic and narrow. After you pass through Areni village, it will wind through canyons and the colors of the mountains change to a bright red and orange. The entire surrounding areas of Noravank is truly surreal.

It is located in Vayots Dzor province, Noravank Monastery is considered to be one of the most old pieces of architecture in Armenia and it is said that has faced many renaissances and renovations throughout its rich history.

This monastery should be visited. The road leading to it after you make a turn from the Areni-1 cave is breathtaking. The monastery complex is overwhelming. Architecture, amazing location and unforgettable views.

Noravank was built 13 centuries ago! The monastery stands majestically in the gorge of the river Arpa, and in the gorge, makes the view even more impressive. The exceptionally magnificent landscape surrounding the two ancient churches and the chapel attracts tourists from all over the world.

Located in the Vayots Dzor region, it’s a lovely ride through Gnishik Canyon to reach Noravank Monastery. This natural setting enhances the beauty of the monastic complex, and it also adds to the sense of seclusion and spiritual contemplation associated with monasteries. Along the driveway, you will see many caves in the canyon.

A holy vhurch on a hill with nearly slope. The church has stairs to enter the main floor which consists of a sanctuary with a picture of holy Mary and her child.
Tried to show more by the photos :)

An amazingly awesome place to explore and walk around, take some nice pictures, and enjoy. One more historic pearl in the Armenian necklace.

Throughout all the different and beautiful monastery complexes in Armenia, Noravank is standing out with its very unique location. It's located in Gnishik canyon, surrounded with an amazing red rocks, which you almost can't find similar in other places in Armenia. It has something like it's own spirit... very different vibe.. especially when you are lucky enough to be there when there is no people (usually it's very busy!). Consider, that July-August is very hot there!! My favorite season is late spring..
