Noravank Monastery

Armenia is truly full of numerous churches, but even in the diversity of those churches you can never find one resembling the other. The Monastery of Noravank is not an exception which is a 13th century Armenian monastery, located 118km from Yerevan  in a narrow  blood-red canyon, near the town of Yeghegnadzor. The monastery, nestled at the end of the impressive canyon, is a realization of the grandiose dreams of the 13th century Orbelian family, and the repository of some of Armenia’s finest sculptures, including one that is often pointed out as Armenia’s first Renaissance art work. Literally translated from Armenian, Noravank means “New Monastery”.  Here worked famous Armenian architects Siranes and Momik. The monastic complex has an interesting love story behind. Due to the great love of the master Momik and the princess the world has the chance to enjoy the monastery of incredible beauty.
