About Attraction

The complex is what survived of once flourishing town of Gremi, which was the kingdom of Kakheti in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Archangels’ Church complex is located on a hill and consists of the Church of the Archangel Michael and Gabriel, a three-story castle, a bell tower and a wine cellar. The Church of the Archangels was built by the order of King Levan of Kakheti. It is a cruciform domed church built mainly of stone. Portraits of the kings of Kakheti were painted on the walls by the modern Georgian painter Levan Chogoshvili.
