Ananuri Castle

The Ananuri complex was built in the place were two rivers come together – Aragvi and Vedzathevi, so no army could pass unnoticed and enemies were finding themselves immediately trapped by the natural “gates” and the fortress’s defenders. The complex played a significant role in numerous wars between local feudal princes and it has never been taken by storm! Today, the structure is very popular due to its durability: since its construction, the stone walls and towers has not collapsed. As well, you can admire here the Church of the Assumption, with its richly decorated facades and the famous carved grapevine cross.
