Create an itinerary including Saint Gregory The Illuminator Cathedral
An imposing and austere Armenian Apostolic church, Saint Gregory The Illuminator Cathedral dominates the city skyline. The massive cathedral complex was completed in 2001, on the 1,700th anniversary of Armenia's adoption of Christianity. It contains the remains of St. Gregory, as well as relics belonging to him--transfered here from Naples. Three churches make up the compound, notable for its arched bell tower and simple, modern architecture. The cathedral welcomes all to enter its unembellished interior, and imposes no dress code.
