One of those monuments – Khevi's Sioni – is located in the historic village of Sioni in the Kazbegi Municipality. This was a defensive structure of state importance in the early Middle Ages and guarded the road leading to the Dariali Valley.
Khevi Sioni is a monument from the 9th-10th centuries. The complex contains a triple-naved basilica, a tower, and a wall. There are traces of paintings preserved on the western wall of the church.
Near the church, on a steep cliff face, is a four-story watch tower, and the church is surrounded by an uneven wall of well-laid hewn stones.
From the churchyard of Sioni you can enjoy a magnificent view of the mountains of Kazbegi.
Due to its historical monuments, unique landscape, and rare plants, nearly the entire territory of Khevi has been granted the status of a national park.
