Saturday Scenes: Sighnaghi, Georgia

sighnaghi

Sighnaghi is a small town in the Kahketi region of Georgia that sits high on a cliff over looking the Alazani Valley.  The town was constructed in 1762 by King Heraclius II of Georgia and was once surrounded by a fortress to protect it from attack. Remnants of the old fortress walls are still visible on the hills around the town. Sighnaghi has undergone substantial reconstruction in recent years and with its cobblestone streets and red-tiled rooftops, it almost feels more Italian than Georgian.
