2016-06-26

At 5:00 p.m. local time (3:00 p.m. Rome time), Pope Francis arrives at Khor Virap monastery, one of the most important places of Christianity in Armenia.

Here King Tiridates was baptized in 301, and Armenia became the first Christian nation.

From this place, the border with Turkey, the Pope launches doves of peace. At the foot of the mountain is where, according to the Bible, Noah's Ark stopped.
