What a respite from the hassle of town, with ancient huge trees creating a shadow around the church. Definitely visit with a guide who will be able to tell you everything about the paintings inside.

I tried to visit this place together with my bf, it is 10th January 2021 today, at first when we arrived about 13-30 pm, they told us the price is 200 etb for each, and the ticket office was closed so we couldn’t visit, they told us wait 30 min.... then I tried to take a photo of the church from outside, and the local guy tried to put his hand on my camera, so that I wouldn’t be able to take a pic, that is rude.... we left the place and while visiting another attraction we met a maire of the city and he told us that the guys there told us lie, the price was 100 etb for each, not 200... so we decided to try again to go about 5 pm, there was a wedding ceremony and again the same guys came and started disturbing us saying to go and get the tickets, but again, the ticket office was closed, so how we would get the tickets???? and they tried to first ask for 200 etb each and then they said ok, to pay 100 etb each. I am sure they tried to put the money in their pocket since they were changing the price in 1 minute and the ticket office was closed as well... then I tried to take photo of the wedding since it was really interesting and the guy started pushing me with his hands. So my bf saw it and didn’t like it of course, to defend me he pushed the guy, and there was another guy, a guest from the wedding, who even tried to take a rock to throw in my bf. I still tried to take a photo of the wedding, and one of the guests (one woman), she was trying to tell them to let me do that, but these guys were very agressive with us, one of the guys guests pushed me also with his hands. Never seen like that. It is really a mafia there. In general the people in Ethiopia are very nice, but here it was the worst people and the worst experience in Ethiopia for us.

The murals on the walls of this church are even more amazing than any others we saw in all Ethiopia. It's a lovely compound around the church as well.

This is one of the key sights in Gondor. Loved the architecture of the church which blended in well with the surrounding. Saw some vultures in the trees as well.
