A woman kisses cuz of a priest in the Church of Nakuto Lab, outside Lalibela. At 2400 meters altitude in the Ethiopian highlands, north of Addis Ababa, this small town is monastic (Ethiopia's second city considered holy), known in ancient times as Roha and changed his name after being conquered in the XIII century by King Lalibela Maskal Gebra, who "baptized" as Lalibela. It was, by order of the king, when he began the construction of these unique churches, unique because they are dug in the earth, a fact that makes them unique and they deserved in 1979, recognition as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. The city of Lalibela in southern Ethiopia is known for his twelve Christian churches carved into the rock 800 years ago. The most amazing is Bieta Giyorgis, in the picture, a monumental monolith 12 meters high, intricately carved in stone and cross.
