Armenian cuisine is fabulous. There are a rich array of spices that are used to prepare food, but the Armenians have more than 300 herbs to prepare food. They take a lot of tender loving care to prepare.

Continue tour to Etchmiadzin town – the residence of the Supreme Catholicos of all Armenians and the center of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Etchmiadzin means “The Descent of the Only Begotten Son and is one of the ancient capitals of Armenia.
Etchmiadzin Cathedral – the oldest state-built church in the world. According to the legend, Jesus Christ descended from heaven and indicated the spot for a church to be built. The construction of the church began in 301, the year when Armenia became the first state in the world to adopt Christianity as a state religion. Along with several important early medieval churches located nearby, the cathedral was listed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000.
Cave monastery of Geghard
The spear, with which the roman soldier killed Jesus Christ, was kept here and hence the name of the monastery was taken (Geghard means Holy Spear). This prominent work of architecture, partially carved in the rock, is listed in the UNESCO world heritage list.
Temple of Garni
pagan Temple of Garni (1st c. A.D.), which is a vivid example of Hellenistic culture on the territory of Armenia. Here the ruins of a bath (3rd cent) and a palace (2nd cent. B.C.) can be seen. Garni is located on a deep canyon of Azat river.
The Temple of Garni is unusual for Armenia in that it is an Ionic pagan temple with Greco-Roman colonnades. It was built in the 1st century AD; though it collapsed during a 17th century earthquake, it was painstakingly restored in the early 1970s.
Monastery of Khor Virap
The monastery of Khor Virap is worth a visit. Morning’s the best time to be able to catch a glimpse of distant Mount Ararat over the border. The views from this spectacular monastery are first rate but head inside and descend the steps to see its well too.
Noravank monastery. Hidden away up a canyon, this monastery occupies a setting even more dramatic. Climb to the second floor of the church for incredible views back along the valley.
