Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela – Ethiopia

Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela are a set of churches carved in the rock of Lalibela Hills, a monastic city in Ethiopia. Rock-Hewn Churches of Lalibela were declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1978.

The date of construction of the churches has not been established exactly, but probably most was built during the 12th and 13th centuries. Four of the eleven churches are exempt; the others are attached to the rock by a wall or by the ceiling.
