10:00 Excursion and walk in Signaghi with a guide. Visit Signaghi Museum which features rich collection of ethnographic, numismatic, photo and documentary items. Also the museum has a gallery where the pictures of Niko Pirosmani are exhibited.
Visit St. Nino’s Monasteri in Bodbe located very close to Sighnaghi. The Church was originally built between the 9th and 11th centuries, but has been significantly modified since then. The monastery now functions as a nunnery and is one of the major pilgrimage sites in Georgia, due to its association with St. Nino, the 4th century female evangelist of Georgians, whose relics are shrine there.
Lunch in Sighnaghi restaurant. Wine tasting (optional).
Ninotsminda Cathedral is highly significant to the development of Georgian architecture, as it predates Jvari Monastery in Mtskheta, and served as a model for the development of the later tetraconch (four-apse) form. The site is ruined today, with only the eastern apse and a portion of the western wall remaining. The ruined apse is decorated with 16th century frescoes of the Hodegetria, severely vandalized with bullet holes from Dagestan bandits in the 18th and 19th centuries. Outlines of the foundations indicate that the church originally had an octagonal center, surrounded by corner niches. Historical records indicate that restoration work was undertaken in the 10th and 11th centuries, and also during 1671 and 1774. However, the cathedral collapsed during earthquakes in 1824 and 1848 and was not reconstructed.
