Wander through an ancient walled town
Samshvilde is one of the oldest historical walled towns of Georgia, from which only ruins are left. The stronghold was built near the confluence of two rivers, on a natural land surrounded by vertical ravines.
This ancient town represented the center of Samshvilde’s Saeristavo (the domain of Eristavi feudal lords) since the foundation of the Kingdom of Kartli. The caves, ancient ruins, menhirs, and other landmarks scattered around the city date back to 4,000 years BC.
