There are more impressive monasteries in this part of the country, but travelers who are in the area and can make the drive or hike might consider a visit to Spitakavor if they have the extra time.

A freshwater spring drips out from a pipe at the top of the hill just below the church.
I recommend going up to the church through a mountain gorge. There is a trail about 6 km long, you can start around noon, it's a bit difficult way, but beautiful and interesting
