Locate Sno Fortress

Sno Fortress is located in the village Sno, on the bank of the Sno – right estuary of the Tergi River. The fortress is erected on a stony hilltop, a hardly accessible place. The fortress is surrounded by a virtually circular wall and has a pyramidal tower in the center. According to scholars, it must have been built in the 16-17 cc.

The fortress served to close and defend the gorge that contained shorter routes to Khevsureti, Pshavi, Mtiuleti (through Gudamakari gorge). The fortress belonged to the Ghudushauri family. 

The fortress consists of almost circular walls and one tower. It is built mainly with pieces of stone and black shale. The height of the tower was reaching twenty meters, and today it lacks a few meters. The first floor is at the elevation of 6meters with the only entrance.  The second floor has five embrasures, the third floor is damaged and only vestiges are remained from combating elements.
