Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Enjoy a visit to the picturesque site of Monastery Sevanavank, an ancient religious complex that overlooks Lake Sevan. Situated on a peninsula that was once an island before the water level dropped, the monastery stands atop a hill, with scenic views of the lake and the often snow-capped slopes in the backdrop. You'll need to climb a number of stairs to reach the site, but you'll be rewarded with inspiring panoramic views. Explore the two historic churches, most likely dating from the 9th century and exhibiting a typical, simple Armenian style of architecture. You can plan Sevan trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
