Historical Attractions


Lalībela, religious and Pilgrimage center, north-central Ethiopia Roha, capital of the Zagwe Dynasty for about 300 years, was renamed for its most distinguished monarch, Lalībela (late 12th–early 13th century), 

There’s something intensely wonderful and spiritual about Lalibela, a truly amazing town located in the northern region of Ethiopia. This small village is a World Heritage site – acclaimed for its rock-hewn churches, stunning rural landscape, and devout Christianity. 


Gondar was Ethiopia’s capital between 1632 and 1855, and it remains one of the country’s richest areas in terms of history, culture and natural beauty. Gondar is a land of medieval mystery and the center of an important trading empire. The city holds the remains of several well-preserved royal castles, including those in Fasil Ghebbi (Royal Enclosure), for which Gondar has been called the “Camelot of Africa”. This UNESCO registered site is an ideal touristic destination that connects almost all of the historic routes in Ethiopia.


Aksum (also spelt Axum) stands at the epicentre of Ethiopian history. In ancient times, it served as the economic hub of the Aksumite Empire, which lasted for some nine hundred years from the second to the tenth centuries, and as the capital of a ruling dynasty legendarily descended from King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. It is also the cradle and spiritual home of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, which was established here during the fourth-century reign of King Ezana.
