ABREHA AND ATSHEBA
Petit Futé's opinion on ABREHA AND ATSHEBA
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.
