Kayan Fortress and Akhtala Monastery

More exploring around Alaverdi

From this old stone bridge we hiked along a wooded ridge to the ruins of medieval Kayan Fortress

This small church is the only building still standing at the site

Debed canyon from the fortress

We then drove to the nearby village of Akhtala to visit the 13th century Akhtala Monastery surrounded by the ruins of a even older fortress.
