Lalibela Rock hewn church
Lalibela is known by the amazing eleven
churches hewn from solid rock. Built in the twelfth century, they are still
standing in excellent condition. Most consider them as the eighth wonder of the
world, and is one of the world heritage sites listed by UNESCO.The famous
Lalibela churches carved out from the rock on which they stand. Some lie almost
completely hidden in deep trenches, while others stand in open quarried caves.
A complex and amazing labyrinth of tunnels and narrow passage ways connects
them all.Seeing all of the Lalibela churches are well worth it - particularly
during the colourful Ethiopian christian holidays: Genna, Ethiopian Christmas
(on January 7th) and Timkat, Epiphany (on January 19th).
