Astonishing, quite extraordinary !

All Lalibela churches are extraordinary and this one makes you wonder the power of human knowledge and wisdom. Nobody couldn't figure out how these incredible churches were made nine hundred years ago. A 'must see' once you are in Ethiopia!

all Lalibela churches are incredible
Jul 2021 • Couples
Lalibela, churches are all amazing and a "must to see " however, St George is the most mesmerizing one. I was fascinated how these incredible churches were built some nine hundreds years ago. Hard to to believe!

The best of the churches
Feb 2020 • Solo
This is definitely the best of the churches. I recommend to come here preferably once with a guide. Totally nice to see inside and to take photos for memories. I recommend this place not to miss out when in Lalibela

Beautiful, Visit at sunset
Nov 2019
As a monolithic cross, and with no added roof to obscure the view, the Church of St George stands out among many churches in Lalibela. You get the best light for photographs from the top at sunset, although you should visit earlier in the day to see the inside as well.

The Most Popular Church
Nov 2019 • Friends
This is the most popular one amongst the rock hewn churches due to its shape which is that of a cross. A definite must see. For a better view of the cross shape, one will have to go to the top.

Serene, beauty beyond recognition
Jul 2019 • Friends
Its been a while since my last visit to Lalibela and the rock-hewn churches. But I still remember the feeling of peace and tranquility I felt that day. It never disappoints. The beauty in tradition, the architecture, and the peace that dominates the area are intoxicating. Definatly recommend a visit.

a must see

a wonder of the world. Petra (Jordan) has wonderful buildings carved out of rock, these are even more dramatic - at least as good and worth seeing as the guide books say

St. George Church

We really enjoyed St, George's church. We received a special blessing from the priest. We would recommend see the church to everyone, it is one of the 8th wonders of the world.

The very best of Lalibela's sunken churches
Jan 2020
An architectural achievement of great magnificence. It is a "must see" for all travellers. All dozen churches are worth the many steps you will make but this one is the stunning best of all.
