About Attraction

The monastery was originally built in the 9th century and has been significantly remodeled since then. The traces of the restoration carried out in the 17th and 19th century, are noticeable on the walls. St. Nino’s grave is located in a small hall church, integrated into a larger aisled basilica. In the 1990s, approximately 3 km from the convent, a small Chapel of St. Zabulon and St. Sosana was constructed, to house a St. Nino’s Spring, which, according to a local legend, emerged through Nino’s prayers and is believed to have a healing power. Bodbe monastery now functions as a nunnery.
