This church looked so beautiful to me that I stayed in the courtyard for a while and enjoyed looking at it breathing the fresh air - something rare in Gondar. It is built on high grounds and is famous for the paintings of the ceiling. The face of the angels is the most famous figure of Ethiopia.
I remember when I lay down on the floor to take a pic, the priest came to me and put a pillow under my head, which I found very sweet.... The ceiling is full of the little angel faces each one having a slightly different expression. There are more paintings on the walls depicting St. George killing the dragon and other saints.
