Touchnote armenian cards

These touchs sent my Paula are great. Although these cards are great i won't consider them for my Unesco collection. Initially i thought it would be great way to get some hard-to-get places but then i realized this would be too easy and not so exciting as getting real cards. But they're a nice way to get identify the places and to know a bit more about them.

The Etchmiadzin Cathedral is the oldest state-built church in the world. The original vaulted basilica was built in 301-303 by Saint Gregory the Illuminator when Armenia became the first officially Christian country in the world.
