The guide took us there and I don't really remember being impressed or mooved. It's one of these places you see on a tour and can easily forget.

I wish it was possible to do this site before all others, since it feels like an entrance into the magic site of Lalibela. Either way, it is a remarkable structure and architecture. Absolutely breathtaking! Comfortable shoes and pants are a must, there are some...More

Adam tomb was used as the beginning passage way into these Churches in the ancient city back in 12th century. The place leads out to the compound and still well preserved. A wonderful place to visit.

Some climbing was required to reach this church but the visit was most interesting. The church was built of solid rock.

Adam is not buried here and it's not a tomb. The priest inside is friendly but lots of locals hang around outside pestering you.
