Gremi FortressYour model is disabled. For more details go to Edit properties3D Model
Gremi once was an active Georgian trading post along the Silk Road, until it was razed in 1615 by Shah Abbas I of Persia. Historical ruins, and this, the Church of the Archangels, are all that remain of the once-vibrant city.
Church construction began in 1565. The complex modeled here includes the church itself, complete with belltower, alongside a three-story castle. The complex is encircled by a wall that features turrets and towers. Architecturally, it is remarkable for marrying Georgian masonry with local interpretations of Iranian architecture. Gremi fortress is on a list of proposed UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
