The Historique Route

One of Ethiopia's primary attractions for the visitor is her plethora of historical sites, unique in sub-Saharan Africa. While much of her history is impenetrably bound up in myth and legend, a great deal of it is well documented. The well -trodden path through Ethiopia’s famous and fascinating historic places takes you through a scenically magnificent world of fairy -tale names, such as Yeha, Axum, Lalibela, Gondar, Bahar Dar and Harer.

In general the historic route that covers all the historical attractions of Ethiopia includes:

The archaeological & religious sites of Axum
The ancient city of Sabeans, Yeha (5th BC)
The rock churches of Tigray
The 13th century rock-hewn churches of Lalibela
The 17th century castles of Gondar
Lake Tana and its island monasteries near Bahir Dar
The 1000-year-old Muslim Town of Harer
The near by town of Harar-Dire Dawa.
