Sighnaghi – Bodbe monastery
Excursion in Kakheti, Sighnaghi town, Bodbe monastery
Short excursion in Kakheti region to visit most popular places – Bodbe monastery and Sighnaghi town. If you have not enough time or searching more light route, but you want to see some important places in Kakheti, that’s for you. First stop in Bodbe monastery – The monastery now functions as a nunnery and is one of the major pilgrimage sites in Georgia, due to its association with St. Nino, the 4th-century female evangelist of Georgians, whose relics are shrines there. Originally built in the 9th century, it has been significantly remodeled, especially in the 17th century. After the Bodbe monastery you will visit Sighnaghi town – “City of love”. Densely built houses with red roofs on the hill like mushrooms, look great from afar in any weather and season. But while walking inside the city you notice how carefully the architecture of different buildings from different times is shifted. Sighnaghi – during a tour of the narrow streets, you will hear a story about the original meaning of this place, and how the defensive city became a city of love. The 4 km long fortress wall gives the city a proverbial charm. From the city offers a breathtaking panorama of the Alazani Valley.
Best period for this trip: from JANUARY till DECEMBER.
