Gishen

Description

The Gishen Monastery is one of the most venerated in all of Ethiopia. It would apparently house a fragment of the actual Cross preserved in a well over 20 m deep.

The beauty of this site and the original shape of the Gishen Plateau, flanked by four sanctuaries, three of which have been symbolically erected facing North, South and West, according to the layout of Ethiopian churches, alone justifies this excursion.
