Petit Futé's opinion on ABREHA AND ATSHEBA

Plate millesim 2022

One of the most interesting churches in the region. Easily accessible, it appears in the rock behind a later portico. The interior, very large (16 m x 13 m), contains very beautiful wall paintings and finely carved ceilings. The local tradition dates from the excavation of the shrine of the kings of Kings, Ezena and Sezana, to which it is dedicated and reigned in the fourth century. The damage, such as the fire and the destruction of a pillar, would be due to Ahmed le Gaucher. Among other treasures, the church would hold the prayer cross of Frumentius (Abba Salama), the first bishop of the Ethiopian Church.

The church, which houses three tabs, is the subject of a great pilgrimage on October 14.

Des fresques très belles et un lieu de pèlerinage très fréquenté. Le 14 octobre la foule des fidèles est impressionnante.... et la queue pour le bus risque de vous prendre 3 ou 4 heures.
Une des plus intéressantes du Tigré : si vous n'en visitez qu'une d'intérieur, c'est celle-là qu'il faut absolument choisir : fresques passionnantes, tous les murs en sont couverts.
