Nekresi Monastery

Nekresi Monastery is a 6th-century Georgian Orthodox monastery complex located in the Kakheti region of eastern Georgia. The monastery was founded by St. Abibos Nekreseli and has since undergone numerous renovations and additions. Visitors can see the remains of the original 6th-century basilica, as well as the 16th-century church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, which features unique frescoes and carvings. The complex also includes a bell tower, a wine cellar, and a museum showcasing medieval Georgian manuscripts, ceramics, and metalwork. The surrounding area offers stunning views of the Alazani Valley and the Caucasus Mountains.

The monastery is open to visitors daily from 9am to 7pm (metric: 09:00-19:00), and entrance fees are minimal. Visitors should dress modestly and respectfully as the complex is still an active religious site.
