Armenia - Is a nation, and former Soviet republic, in the mountainous Caucasus region
straddling Asia and Europe. Among the earliest Christian civilizations, it’s defined by
religious sites including the reconstructed Greco-Roman Temple of Garni and 4th-century
Etchmiadzin Cathedral, headquarters of the Armenian Church. Another pilgrimage site
is Khor Virap Monastery, in the foothills of Mt. Ararat, just across the border with Turkey.
