Historical Attractions

Ethiopia , the oldest independent nation in Africa , has proud and long history dating back to the first century AD. Passing through magnificent sceneries of the Ethiopian highlands, a visitor gets amazed with the rich historical treasures of the country that dates back 3000 years to the Axumite Kingdom that used to dominate the vital crossroads of Africa and Asia for almost a thousand years.

Axum also holds the Church of St Mary of Zion , the first Christian church to get built in the whole Africa . The church is also believed to hold the original Ark of the Covenant.

Going south from the city of Axum is Lalibela – the 8th wonder of the world. Lalibella, also considered the second Jerusalem , is a place of 11 rock hewn churches carved out of a solid rock.

Gondar , famous for its dome shaped architectural sophistication is the only imperial castle found in Africa . The fact that all kings of that era built their castles in the same compound makes Gondar unique in the world.

Harar, a walled city in the eastern part of the country, is also the fourth sacred place in the Muslim religion next to Meca, Medina and Jerusalem . The Harar enclosure (Harar Jugol) has been included in the World Heritage List by UNESCO in recognition of its cultural heritage.
