Proshaberd (also Boloraberd) is a fortress built in the 13th century by Prince Prosh Khaghbakian. It is located approximately 6-7 kilometers north of the town of Vernashen. Almost one kilometer east is the 14th century Spitakavor Church dedicated to Saint Astvatsatsin.
Local folklore tells that long ago Prince Prosh fearing possible attacks of the Persian invaders has hid his valuables within the walls of Proshaberd and in the nearby mountains and ravines. It is said that, «If one can understand the symbols left by Prince Prosh, then they may possibly locate his lost treasures.» A khachkar that sits alone near the road strangely reads, «The treasure is in the head.»
