Debre Damo Monastery

Debre Damo Monastery is one of the oldest and most important Monasteries in Ethiopia. It is unique and unforgettable. As most of Ethiopian monasteries, women are not allowed to enter the monastery. The only means of access to the monastery is by climbing twenty‚Äźfive meters up a sheer cliff. Monks lower a safety rope which visitors tied around their waists. Then they use a second, thicker rope to climb the cliff. Extensive collections of illuminated manuscripts including the oldest surviving fragments of texts are preserved here. The Monastery is built with intricate carvings on the beams and ceiling. Also large numbers of paintings are preserved here.
