It is a very nice place to get into this church and sit for a while. It also has a collection of ancient antiques and visitors could enjoy seeing some of them used during the Adwan Era. The church compound is also a quiet and...More

Incredible that this place was not overflowing with guests but they said it was "off season." Love all the sacred symbolism, history, such impressive design. A rare gem.

There must be something wrong when a country charges more to visit a church than to visit museums. Visiting Lalibela churches: USD 50. Holy Trinity Church in Addis Ababa: 200 birrs. St. George’s Cathedral, also in Addis Ababa: 200 birrs. Visiting NATIONAL Museum: 10 birrs....More
