Tigray Rock Hewn Churches PDF Print E-mail
alem-641.jpg dte-pics-205.jpg Distinctive features of Tigray are its rock-hewn churches. Similar in design to those of Lalibella, but many are considered to be older- perhaps  dating from the sixth century. Designs are partly inspired by classical architecture, they are often located at the top of cliffs or steep hills, for security.  For the adventurous -  Tigray's ancient Debre Damo monastery is accessible by climbing a rope 25 meters up a sheer cliff.

It is part of a chain of active volcanoes located in the center of one of the six Afar rifts where an open ocean has formed in connection with a hot spot. The broad, 50-kilometer-wide volcano rises more than 600 meters from below sea level in the barren Danakil depression.
