Gheralta Rock Hewn Churches

Wukro-Degum road leads west to Gheralta. Its rock-crowned peak, together with far reaching plains, enclosed by a chain of mountains, casts a panoramic view. The road continues to Sinkata via the Hawzien town.

One of Tigre's most interesting features is a proliferation of rock-hewn churches. It is the home of a quarter of the rock churches, some famous for their stone workmanship, ancient paintings and manuscripts, and others known for their magnificent view and difficult ascent. Such great churches as Abune Yemata, Mariam Korker, Debre Tsion, Yohannes Maequddi, Abune Gebre Mikael, Debre Ma'ar and Selassie Degum are in the very heart of this cliff.
