CHURCH OF THE HOLY TRINITY
Petit Futé's opinion on CHURCH OF THE HOLY TRINITY
This building, founded in 1931 by Haile Selassie, has an astonishing architectural mix with its dome, pinnacles and adjacent steeple. The stone frames of the openings in the projections on a facade coated with a broken white give it almost Iberian air. The interior houses an imposing crystal chandelier, the imperial thrones, interesting stained glass windows and the frescoes of the artist Agegnew Engeda talking about some great moments of imperial history of the twentieth century, such as Haile Selassie's speech to the League of Nations or the liberation of the country of Italian occupation. In the holy Saints, the body of the Emperor Haile Selassie transferred here in 2001. The garden is the birthplace of many patriots, victims of Italian occupation, but also of officers executed under the Derg regime. More surprising, there is also the tomb of the British who Sylvia Pankhurst who, after having protested against the fascist invasion of Ethiopia, came to end his days. A small museum presents objects offered by the different emperors to the Orthodox Church.
