Khertvisi Fortress is one of the oldest forts in Georgia . It is located in the southern part of the country, north of Khertvisi . The Khertvisi Fortress stands on a rocky promontory, high above the river Mtkvari, guarding the path connecting the towns Akhalkalaki and Akhaltsikhe. The ruins preserved until these days belong to a fort built in the 10th century. However, there had been once a fortified stronghold from the 2nd century BC at this place. Two underground tunnels lead down from Khertvisi Fortress to the river. One tunnel was used for water supply, while the other served as an entrance to the fort.
