Spitakavor Monastery

The 14th-century Spitakavor Monastery was built in the 14th-century on the site of a 5th-century basilica by two princes from the Proshian dynasty. Prince Eachi initiated the construction but died in 1318. It was completed 3 years later in 1321 by his son Prince Amir Hasan II. It is built of polished felsite stone, which gives its name (“Spitak” means white in Armenian).
