A city scattered with impressive historical monuments & castles
Gonder was the capital of Ethiopia from 1632 to 1855, and it has the remains of castles and palaces constructed by a series of emperors from Fasilides (reigned 1632–67) to Iyasu II (1730–55). When you pass through Gondar, you really shouldn't miss seeing the fort of Fasil Ghebbi. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, these fortifications are amazing. With crenels and towers, you'd think you were in Europe. You can walk in the gardens, admire the building's exterior and take a look inside some of the 5 palaces.
Near the Royal Enclosure there is a small church of Debre Berhan Selassie, very well-known across the country and located on a hill in the north. Upon entry, you can admire very beautiful paintings on the ceiling and walls. Also, the Qusquam Monastery, built by Queen Mentewab, as well as her palace.
