VI AD - Syunik Marz

Yeritsavank
This very ancient monastery (1,500 years old) is in rather good condition considering its age. The walls are actually extremely tall, and the ground level outside has risen over time to sink the church a bit. It is located near the top of a tall, steep mountain, with stone cliffs nearby that have some shallow caves seemingly good for camping. The views are great.

"East of the road, Artsvanik (466 v.) dates to the 6th c. 3 km NE is Yeritsavank, a 6th c. church and pilgrimage site named after Yeritsuk, a mid-6th c. bishop of Syunik."
