There were three ways to build a church, some were excavated in a rock, others took advantage of a natural cave, and the most spectacular ones were separated from the central monolith to isolate it from the rest of the rock.

As a wallpaper background, religion permeates life of Ethiopians since childhood. Young Mimi has the opportunity to begin a journey accompanied by his brother, Yijeno, a monk living in a monastery near Lalibela. This amazing city treasures eleven churches carved into the rock and the memory of the history of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. In the tour, which aims to attend the Maskal party held in Addis Ababa, our players will know Lake Tana, the monumental city of Gondar or Tisisat Falls, while giving testimony to the cultural diversity of a country that has been a crossroads of religions and races.
