Gondar

Ethiopia is first independent country in Africa. There have never colony to Europeans countries.

Gondar was the capital city of Ethiopia from AD 1636 to 1864. The Emperor Fasiladas relocated the capital from its previous location, Gorgora to Gondar, 2000 meters above sea level to avoid the Malaria breakouts.

The Gondar fasiladas called “wonder house”, because it seems like a castle from the European middle ages. It is one Ethiopia’s world heritage sites. The 6 castles and 12 gates remain standing within the fortified walls. Emperors occupied the castle over 200 years.
