A priest at the door of the church Debre Berhan Selassie. According to legend, when the end of the nineteenth century Sudanese dervishes tried to destroy this church, a swarm of bees chased them from the place, chasing angry until the dervishes were forced to abandon their attempt. Debre Berhan Selassie Church is an intimate crammed Ethiopian art. Lives of saints, martyrs and lore are disputing the walls while dozens of winged cherubs look back at the visitor from the ceiling.
