      Amberd - fortress complex, built in the 10th century in the foothills of Mount Aragats, at an altitude of 2300 meters. The facility was built by Prince Kamsarakan. During the reign of Bagratouni fortress became a protective base. In the 70s of the 11th century castle captured the Seljuk Turks. To the south of the estate there is a sauna, built in the 13th century.

      Amberd fortress blends in harmoniously with the surrounding landscape. Its walls seemed to grow out of the surrounding mountains. The architecture of the fortress is very concise and rigorous, devoid of any decoration.

      It is interesting that during archeological excavations found a piece of Armenian lavash. The bread which we baked at approximately the 12th century, was in excellent condition and could even have a pre-softened.
