The Sighnaghi High School history is sparse to find in the generally small town of Sighnaghi. The economy of this town is provided by the production of wine, Mcvadi (Georgian traditional food) and traditional carpets. Sighnaghi is known as the ‘Love City’ but this abandoned school is no longer shown any love. The school is relatively small and the gym has seen better days. Parchment and pictures lie scattered with broken chairs and desks in piles. Seen in the background of the school are the 18th century remains of the fortress walls erected by King Heraclius II of Georgia to defend Sighnaghi from attacks by the Dagestan tribesmen.
