Beautiful snow capped mountain views and lovely church buildings. St George church inside the monastery has amazing artworks that look to be centuries old. Also nuns here look after cats and dogs that are very friendly. Lastly even in mid November, there's a nice flower patch that is still blossoming despite the frost on it.
Amazingly located monastery in the neighborhood of Sighnaghi with incredible views over the valley towards the mountains on the other side. The garden is well looked after and the buildings are in a perfect condition from the outside. The paintings inside could need a little make over.
