A man sells prickly pears Lalibela market. North of Ethiopia we find the former and current Roha Lalibela. This holy city is notable for its rock-hewn churches that were built in the eleventh century low Zegüe domain Dynasty. It was King Lalibela Gebra Maskal who came to this barren place but full of reddish basalt rock in the excavation. The Libela churches are divided into two completely separate groups thanks to the Jordan River which separates them, but these churches are linked by walkways and tunnels that pilgrims used during your visit. Biet Giyorgis Church is the best preserved and is the only one that is separated from the others.
