Armenia is a country of unforgettable landscapes: precipices, stony valleys, lakes set around rocks, and countryside covered in wild flowers; it is a land framed by mountains covered in snow and dotted with deep caverns. But the true essence and soul of Armenia are the thousand year-old monasteries, isolated in the depths of valleys and apparently empty and deserted, and the more than 40,000 churches dedicated to the most ancient Christian cult in the world. All this (and much more) is documented through Graziella Vigos 200 extraordinary and original photographs. It is a collection of images portraying sacred ceremonies, private rites, interiors of great allure and atmosphere, and breath-taking landscapes.
