Debre Birhan Selassie Church

DEBRE BIRHAN SELASSIE CHURCH

Besides the eleven or so castles and related buildings, the 17th century Debre Birhan Selassie Church is the only one that has survived the repeated destructions of Gondar at hands of the Dervish (Egypto-Sudanse), Tewodros, the Italians and the British. The church is a rich showcase of the religious art of the Gonderine period and its ceiling of painted angels is only one of its kind.

AWRA AMBA

A unique settlement that is considered to be a prime model for self-help and above all gender equality. Women have equal rights as men and there is no distinction in division of labor, men cook and women plow. The main means of livelihood for the community is weaving. There’s home for the elderly with 24 hour care and a committee that helps out new mothers, who also get three months of maternity leave.
