Yemrehanna Krestos Church, Lalibela, Ethiopia

“The church of Yemrehanna Krestos is one of Ethiopia’s best-preserved late Axumite churches, and is named for a twelfth-century Zagwe priest-king and saint. It is located inside a large natural cavern on a hill in northern Ethiopia, set in a spectacular landscape of juniper trees, predating the famous nearby rock-hewn churches of Lalibela by almost a century.”
