Create an itinerary including Gori Castle
Gori Castle once served as a strategic fortification overlooking the eponymous city. Perched on a rocky hill, the fortress probably dates to the 13th century. The present-day structure was built between 1630 and 1774, featuring rounded bastions made of baked bricks and herringbone patterns in the stonework of the walls. Enjoy a view of the city through pointed stone arches, and see snowcapped Caucasus in the distance.

  • Probably should give it 3.5 stars to be honest. Basically a great viewing point for the city and it is worth the visit while you are there.

  • Gori Fortress you can’t really miss it as the location is in the center of town on top of a hill. After stopping for a quick bite, we were off to find the entrance. Walking around the bottom of the hill we finally found a pathway that looked like it would take us to the entrance. There is no entrance fee to visit Gori Fortress. You walk up a staircase that leads you up to the gate where you enter. I’ll be honest there is not that much to see. The only visible signs of the fort are the walls, which are impressive. No buildings are within the walls of the Fortress, making it difficult to imagine what it may have looked like in its glory. The views from atop of the hill are truly incredible. You can see out over the city and far into the surrounding countryside. 3btraveler
  • Nice view from up the fortress after a small, simple hike. There is not much left to from the fortress. Its basically just a big grass pitch and some walls. Still enjoyed going tho.
