The ancient rock-hewn churches of Tigray were built between 4th and 15th century, there are more than 100 of them. They offer amazing atmospheric ambience and views over spectacular landscapes. In this video visit to 6 of the most appealing churches in Tigray - interesting either historically, architecturally or because they offer the most spectacular views over the surrounding landscapes. We hiked to 3 of the Gheralta cluster churches: Maryam and Daniel Korkor, Abuna Yemata Guh; visited Mikael Imba (Atsbi cluster), Medhane Alem Adi Kasho and Petros and Paulos (Teka Tesfai cluster), and Abreha We Atsbeha (Wukro cluster).
