‘The existence of the towers depends on our humanity, dignity and wishes; on how we want to return our history and care for it.’
Lela Tserediani is the local guide a the Mestia Museum. She’s the one who knows most about the history of Svaneti. Everyone in the region knows that. She feels sorry for the bad condition of the towers in Svaneti. But she truly believes that “if every family would be able to mobilise money, sources and wishes, all of them will definitely reconstruct it and feel the pride of its origin.”
Lela is a guide at Mestia Museum and teacher from Latali.
