A girl carries water that has gone to pick up a nearby well in the mountains of Gheralta. Gheralta is a region of extreme beauty, with spectacular red mountains and breathtaking scenery. From Abraha Atsbeha can visit the church of Yohannes Maequddi with precious frescoes in very good condition. But you have to climb forty minutes to get there. Later, I read about this church, which featured David Buxton: This church of St. John, is the Most Interesting I have seen and is memorable, too, for its means of access is narrow Which clef Between bulging walls of bare, glaring sandstone (This church of San Juan is the most interesting I've seen and it is worthy of mention because of its path, a narrow crack between bare walls and dazzling bulky sandstone). From Atsbeha Abraha, you can also visit the church of Debre Zion. The paintings are in very poor condition and have to climb a steep road fifty minutes.
