Previously home to many Emporer’s between the 12th and 20th Centuries, Gondar enjoys much royal and ancient history.

The remains of the old Emporer’s Fortress is one of Gondar’s most famous historical sites, along with the 17th Century Castle of Emporer Fasilides. It’s architecture is a rich combination of Indian and portugese influences. The church outside the castle, known as the Debre Berhan Selassie, interestingly has an interior ceiling of faces.
