Make your way through lush vegetation to find Kiddus Raguel Church, a 19th-century church seemingly located in the middle of nowhere. The octagonal-shaped religious site consists of two stories and three layers. Only priests can access the innermost layer of the church, with the middle being accessible to pilgrims, and the outermost reserved for special occasions. Tour the inside of the church to find typical Ethiopian artwork covering the walls, and be sure to head to the courtyard, where you'll see an old rock-hewn church.
