GONDAR (AFRICAN CAMELOT)

Gondar offers fairy-tale castles dating back to the 17th-century that seem to belong in an Arthurian Romance. Gondar was founded by the emperor Fasiladas in 1636 and was the capital of the country for the next two centuries. The city contains a dozen of castles built by various emperors over the course of 236 years.

Gondar seems more European than African and its architecture has some Islamic influences. Besides the castles, baths and houses of Fasiladas, another significant sight is the church of Debre Birhan Selassie (Light of the Trinity), which is located on the summit of a hill and surrounded by fortified walls. The interior is decorated with beautiful frescoes dating back to the 16th century.
