Gori Castle, Gori

#2 of 6 in Historic Sites in Shida Kartli Region
Gori Castle once served as a strategic fortification overlooking the eponymous city. Perched on a rocky hill, the fortress probably dates to the 13th century. The present-day structure was built between 1630 and 1774, featuring rounded bastions made of baked bricks and herringbone patterns in the stonework of the walls. Enjoy a view of the city through pointed stone arches, and see snowcapped Caucasus in the distance.
