2 reviews of St. George's Cathedral

Cathedral & cemetery

The Cathedral of St. George, the patron saint of Ethiopia in Addis Ababa, an essential visit ... was built in 1896 by Emperor Menelik II to commemorate the victory against Italy at the Battle of Adwa (1896), has an octagonal shape and a neoclassical style, surrounded by gardens. The day we went we could not get in because of the funeral of a senior member of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. A that could not fit in was beating on the doors,.. and we could see some of the velvet umbrellas and other fabrics, embroidered, used on special occasions, such as Easter and renowned processions.
