Lalibela is the jewel in the crown of Ethiopia, the site of the most famous churches and the scene of many major religious ceremonies. The churches have been active for 900 years, and there are over 600 priests and deacons. The churches, arguably Ethiopian’s top attraction, are carved below ground level and ringed by trenches and courtyards, and are connected to each other by a tangled maze of tunnels and passages. The famous Bete Giyorgis, otherwise known as the Church of St George and possibly Ethiopia’s most photographed destination, is located in Lalibela.
