Rock-Hewn Churches, Lalibela   (Hide)
The 11 medieval monolithic cave churches of this 13th-century 'New Jerusalem' are situated in a mountainous region in the heart of Ethiopia near a traditional village with circular-shaped dwellings. Lalibela is a high place of Ethiopian Christianity, and is still today a place of pilgrimage and devotion.
