Historically, Armenia was always at the crossroads of trade routes and was constantly subjected to raids by foreign invaders and nomads.

 A striking evidence of this is a huge number of all kinds of ancient castles and fortresses in the country, intended for defense from the enemy.

Many of these architectural sights are preserved up to the present. Tourists and travelers are mostly attracted by the castles and fortresses which are founded on inaccessible cliffs.
