The 13th century Arates monastery
We parked by the side of the road near Yeghegis, walked along a trail and over the narrow bridge to a medieval Jewish cemetery.
The tombstones date from 1266 to 1497. The origins of this Jewish community are unknown.
Our last stop was in the village of Yeghegis where we parked and walked up a rough road to three old churches.
18th-century St Astvatsatsin church
14th-century Surp Zorats church
