The rock-hewn churches of Lalibela are exceptionally fine examples of a long-established Ethiopian building tradition.

This rural town is known around the world for its monolithic churches which play an important part in the history of rock-cut architecture. Though the dating of the churches is not well established, most are thought to have been built during the reign of Lalibela, namely during the 12th and 13th centuries.
