    Top Descriptions

    As the largest and most popular town in the Debed Canyon of Lori, you might expect to find something more appealing than what greets you upon arrival. Thanks mostly to the belching , but also due to the unappealing and run down soviet block architecture, Alaverdi is not a particularly pretty place. To be frank, it’s polluted, littered and poorly facilitated. Yet people still continue to be drawn here because of the fantastic UNESCO churches that are scattered about this canyon. Don’t let the put you off coming altogether; it’s 250 years old and very much a part of Alaverdi. But do perhaps come here expecting a metallic taste in the air, and just be prepared not to want to linger once you’ve seen the sights.
