Lalibela's medieval rock-hewn churches The cross-shaped church of Bete Giyorgis (St George) is just one of 11 monolithic cave churches, they have been cut out of the rock so their roofs are at ground level. How were they carved using basic tools? How long did it take? What happened to the rock that was removed? Legend has it that angels assisted in the building! Still visited by pilgrims, it is possible to venture inside some of them, though only by lots of uneven steps. Obviously they are dark inside, but some feature internal wall paintings and mosaics and they all have a resident monk! Getting You There Prices are based on Ethiopian Airlines from Heathrow.
