About This Book

Two hundred extraordinary photographs of sacred ceremonies, interiors, and breathtaking landscapes from one of the lesser-known cradles of civilization. Armenia is a country of unforgettable landscapes: a country framed by mountains covered in snow, dotted with deep caverns, stone valleys, lakes set around rocks, and countryside covered in wild flowers. But the true essence and soul of Armenia are the thousand year-old monasteries isolated in the depths of valleys and the more than 40,000 churches dedicated to the most ancient Christian religion in the world. All this, and much more, is documented through Graziella Vigo’s two-hundred extraordinary and original photographs: a collection of images portraying ceremonies, private rites, interiors of great allure and atmosphere, and incredible landscapes. An illustrated narrative of the country’s past and present is the ideal gift for lovers of travel, art and history of civilizations.
