MARIAM KORKOR AND ABOUNA DANIEL

Petit Futé's opinion on MARIAM KORKOR AND ABOUNA DANIEL

Vintage plate 2020

If you need to limit yourself to a few churches, this visit is unavoidable in Tigray. Access to these churches is at least sporty, but the panorama is spectacular throughout the hike. After a small walk through the fields at the foot of the cliff, the ascent begins through a narrow steep discontinuity in which a natural staircase is dug. The first step is to climb directly along the rock or through a winding but less sensational path. Finally, after a good time of escalation, the rich facade of the church appears. The interior, which is less precise, is organised on the classical three-naves plane surmounted by a dome painted by Greek cross. On sculpted walls of arcatures, there is a whole bestiary, human-headed animals, a winged monster, as well as other characters and more classical biblical scenes. These paintings, probably carried out by different artists, dates a period between the th and th centuries. Again, it is difficult to be more precise in the absence of systematic and systematic studies.

Not far away, along an impressive cliff, lies the small cave church of Adouna Daniel, consisting of two richly decorated cavities. It is quite magical, the panorama that offers you infinity is splendid. The tabot having been transferred to Mariam Korkor, the sanctuary is considered to be disused. Before attacking the descent, the extraordinary panorama embracing the plains of Hausien, the mountains of Du and, to the east, the mountains of the Imbasneity allows to take back their spirits.

Très belle église perchée et étonnamment peinte à l'intérieur. L'ascension pour y arriver n'est pas très longue mais peut être éprouvante pour les non marcheurs. Elle offre une vue magnifique sur la vallée du Tigré. Cette région a été ma préférée parmi mon séjour dans le Nord de l'Ethiopie.
