Upon a hilltop at the end of a lake is Ananuri, a complex of castle and church. It was first built in the 1200s and was used 600 years. We did not see much of the castle, mostly ruins.
The church was in much better shape, and again the difference between relatively new decorations and the old fresco painting caught my attention. I definitely like the old style best.
Of course the church was decorated on the outside. It was much more stone carving on the outside than on the inside of the churches. I particularly liked this angel who seems angry, with a moustache and carrying fire (?) in his hands.
The entrance door was really decorated.
And of course grapes.
