"Massawa Charming Red Sea Port" Massawa by janiebaxter
Massawa Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 45 photos
Massawa was known as The Peal of The Red Sea, a once beautiful City. It was dessimated by Ethiopia during the war but rebuilding has started, and much is being done to preserve the style of the original city.
The old palace is in a terrible state of repair. You can still walk in and look around but hopefully funds will be found to refurbish it
Massawa is divided into 2 islands Massawa and Taulud. Massawa Island is great to explore on foot. Opposite the harbour is a 17th century coral block house and the streets are lovely to stroll around in the late afternoon
- Pros:Charm and character
- Cons:in need of restoration
