This adventure begins in the Northern Tier of the country, starting in Bahir Dar, the source of the Nile, continuing to the ancient city of Gondar, often described as the Camelot of African, and on to Axum and its archeological treasures. Finally we arrive in Lalibela, and its famous rock churches – an UNESCO World Heritage Site. We explore the interplay of religion and civilization, the role of architecture and how kings used it to legitimize their reigns, and the cultural influences of those eras and how they continue to today.
