worth seeing

worth seeing this type of cathedral, an interesting contrast to the traditional churches arond the contry one sees as a tourist. Also interesting to see the tomb of Slyvia Pankhurst (and her son, Richard) outside

An interesting place to visit
Feb 2020
The Holy Trinity Cathedral was an interesting place to visit, learn more about the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, and see the tombs of Emperor Haile Selassie and Empress Menen Asfaw.

Interesting place to visit

Beautiful church and the burial place of Haile Selassie. The grounds are interesting with a Haile Selassie museum, a memorial to victims of the Communist Derg and a group of monuments to Ethiopian heroes.

History of the site as important as the cathedral
Feb 2020 • Solo
The cathedral was built on an historical site of the capital’s development and is well preserved. Usual courtesy of shoes off at door but you were allowed to take photos respectfully inside the cathedral. Saturday morning was a great time to visit as no one around or service in progress. Haile Selassie I and his wife have their tombs inside the cathedral near the main beautiful dome. Outside the cathedral the graveyard also contains the memorials of the most famous Ethiopians. Must see part of an Addis Ababa visit.

Overpriced but Worth Seeing
Feb 2020
At 200 of the local currency, with its "hit the tourists with much higher chargers" this cathedral is worth seeing once for the church, a small museum of religious artifacts, and some interesting graveyards. Shame on the practice of fleecing non-natives just to see a church.

Beautiful church.
Feb 2020 • Couples
While not a large church by western standards it certainly does not lack character and should be visited. The stained glass is beautiful. There are both the traditional bible scenes and modern glass.
Be sure to visit the cemetery and see the incredible monuments.

Looked good, but didn't enter because of admission
Feb 2020
The church looks pretty nice from the outside, and I was really hoping to go in, but unfortunately this was the absolute end of my trip and I didn't have the 200 birr in cash that they (surprisingly, to me) require for admission. (roughly $6). It wasn't that it was too expensive, I just was out of birr. Yeah, I could have gone to an ATM, but it wasn't worth it for just this one place.

A quick, must-see visit if you're in Addis Ababa
Jan 2020
This historic church is a must-see stop if you have an hour or so to spare during your time in Addis Ababa. Beautiful architecture and stained glass and interesting history.

Worth a peek
Feb 2020
The church was tucked away down a park- like setting. It looks old, so therefore interesting to us. We didn’t ho inside, but saw it from outside...
