The ride from the main road towards Noravank is special in itself, due to the gorgeous views during the trip. When arriving at the complex, the beautiful buildings look very appealing. Great site to spend an hour or so and to enjoy the scenery!

The monastery is one of many in Armenia, but also one of the nicest. The nature around it is without vegetation, what makes impression. It has several buildings with nice reliefs and paintings.

Most of the road will be covered by a car. You need to walk about 2 mins to reach the church. The road is very lovely and it's a must see place. Go for it!!
