Visit Gondar EthiopiaGONDAR, surrounded by the lower hills of the southern Semien Mountains, lies at 2,200m above sea level.  “The City of Castles” is one of Ethiopia’s most fascinating sites founded by Emperor Fasiledess in 1635A.D. At this time, Gondar became the Royal capital city of the country. In subsequent years, several Castles were built, each unique in size and architecture. Gondar is a city rich in fabulous history and ancient mountains. For so many centuries, it was the center of fine arts, music, science, religion, commerce and administration. The most interesting church of Gondar is “Debre Birhan Selassie” (Light of Mount Trinity). This trinity church is built in a rectangular shape; its ceilings are decorated with beautiful winged angles and its walls with impressive scenes depicting Biblical events.


LalibelaLalibela, set at 2,600m above sea level in the rugged mountains of northern Wollo, is the most exciting attraction of the country. Lalibela was a place from where the Zagwe Dynasty ruled the country for more than two centuries. Lalibela, formerly known as Roha, bears the name of its most famous King “Lalibela” (1181-1221A.D). There are eleven rock hewn monolithic churches believed to have been built by King Lalibela, which are architecturally unique buildings, finely carved and some decorated with beautiful paintings. There is nothing that could be more attractive than these fascinating and impressive churches with their ancient architected and carvings. The ancient rock hewn churches at Lalibela are also registered by UNESCO as the Eight Wonders of the World.
