  • At the top of the mountain not far from Addis with a beautiful view of the capital in sunny weather. Beautiful church, a small museum and the Palace of the empty furniture Prince just the building to imagine his life as a Prince. Entry 200birr (€1 = 32 BIRN) without Guide.

  • long trip from the centre of Addis to find..........nothing. It is far from the centre. You pass some place where they sell local fabrics but not really worth buying anything.  more »
  • On the site of the first capital of modern Ethiopia. Observe with respect the believers who come in large numbers

  • Very interesting site to with a church and a museum to visit. Behind the church is also king's Menilik palace. It also merits a visit as it hides the story behind the name of the city and much more. The way to the top of the mountain is also full of life with villagers transporting wood and water on very basic transportation means or with no means at all other than simple physical strength. The mountain is surrounded with ecaliptus trees and offers a great view to the city.
  • The weather is perfect. You feel a fresh air like the old days.
  • You will see the first palace of king minilik the second. The history of modern ethiopia and addis ababa start from here.
  • This is the first church built in Addis Ababa, by the famous king Minilik the second. Here you will see the palace and the beauty of view of Addis Ababa from the top.
  • Fabulous place.. you have to visit this place.. you can see the whole city from here.
