Monastery of Sanahin Reviews
Superbe Monastère, petit Frère d'un autre situé à quelques kilomètres. Endroit dans son jus, mais bien entretenu. Belles croix "en dentelle". Petites Chapelles au fond du cimetière, à voir. more »Superb Monastery, little Brother of another located a few kilometers away. Place in its juice, but well maintained. Beautiful "lace" crosses. Small chapels at the bottom of the cemetery, to see.
I liked the many different buildings and there were some tour groups but it was easy to avoid them. Very nice spot more »

together with haghpat monastery the best places to see in entire Armenia (to me Tatev and other places were overrated)
