Debre-Damo Monastery

Some 76 Kilometers from Axum is the monastery of DebreDamo (closed to Women), situated on cliff top in one of the wildest parts of Tigray and which is said to have the oldest existing intact church in Ethiopia. Local tradition says that AbuneAregawi, one of the nine Saints, built the church in the 16th Century.

The Monastery of DebreDamo can only be reached by rope pulley for about 16meters.  Remote and beautiful, far from the hustle and bustle of the 21st century, the cool celestial island of rock offers panoramic view over the surrounding countryside and complete seclusion and peace for the 100 or so monks and deacons who live there.More over the maintain chains of Adwa(Soleda)  are among the several attractive sites that can be covered within a day excursion.
