On the W edge of Kapan, on a hill S of the Voghji river, sit the ruins of Halidzor fortress =30=, with church remains within. Built in the 17th c. as a nunnery, it became the headquarters of Davit Bek, the famous early 18th c. freedom fighter. He died there of illness in 1728, and is by repute buried in the cemetery outside the castle. (Source: Rediscovering Armenia Guidebook)
