Nice castle on the way. Worthwhile stopping by. Still under reconstruction so some parts will be closed. Old restoration works look medium quality but the fresh ones are good.

Castle is really pretty from the outside and the church is nice enough, but the inside of the castle is mostly blocked off. You can't climb to the top tower but you can go to two slightly lower terraces with amazing views. Not amazing enough to drive all the way from Madrid for, but if you're passing by the 2€ price is worth it even if it's just for the views.

Beautiful castle and church. 2Euro entrance fee that is well worth it.

Narikala Castle

Narikala is an ancient fortress overlooking Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, and the Kura River. The fortress consists of two walled sections on a steep hill between the sulphur baths and the botanical gardens of Tbilisi. On the lower court there is the recently restored St Nicholas church. Newly built in 1996–1997, it replaces the original 13th-century church that was destroyed in a fire. The new church is of 'prescribed cross' type, having doors on three sides. The internal part of the church is decorated with the frescos showing scenes both from the Bible and history of Georgia.

The fortress was established in the 4th century and it was a Persian citadel. It was considerably expanded by the Umayyads in the 7th century and later, by king David the Builder (1089–1125). Most of extant fortifications date from the 16th and 17th centuries. In 1827, parts of the fortress were damaged by an earthquake and demolished.
