The external facade of this church is quite simple but the paintings on the inside are among the best we saw in Ethiopia. Truly stunning. The winged cherubs will immediately grab your attention but this is the one place where it really does make sense to have your guide walk you through some of the murals. Ask to see the mural of Mohammed.
Flash photography is prohibited and the low lighting makes it difficult to get good shots. If you really want photos, you might want to plan ahead and make sure you have the right equipment and a tripod.
