In pictures, The churches of Lalibela in Ethiopia: BBC


Ahead of Easter, the BBC’s Frank Gardner’s visit the churches of Ethiopia.

Carved in stone: the extraordinary 12th Century Church of St George at Lalibela. Part of a World Heritage site, it took more than 20 years to carve this church out of the mountainside




Many Ethiopians trek for miles to reach these churches in time for Palm Sunday. Here a Baptism is taking place.
