Shatili is a historic highland village in Georgia located near the border with Russia. It is located on the northern slope of the Greator Caucasus mountains, in the historical Georgian province of Upper Khevsureti which is now part of the Mtskheta-Mtianeti region.
It is located in the deep Arghuni gorge at the altitude of  1,400 meters above the sea level. The village is actually a unique complex of medieval-to-early modern fortresses and fortified dwellings of stone and mortar which functioned both as a residential area and a fortress guarding the northeastern outskirts of the country. The fortress consists of the terraced structures dominated by flat-roofed dwellings and some 60 towers which cluster together to create a single chain of fortifications.
