Liberation Avenue, Asmara

See the effect of Italian colonialism in Africa at Liberation Avenue. A mix of Italian-influenced architectural styles fill the street, making it one of the most beautiful in Africa. Find Italian Rationalism, Furutism, and Novecento architecture created by Italian colonialists filling the area. The colony's impression doesn't end there; typically Italian meals, such as pizza and pasta, have almost become national dishes here. Find important buildings located along the street, including the old governor's palace located at the street's west end, and the old opera house to the east.

Return back in time to when I was a kid and my mom took me to pray together (1953................ 1963). The meeting with the brothers is always nice. See Kindergartners, their beauty, the joy in their simple games ... ...

  • I have not found this road on my map of the city, so I believe that this is still the main street of Asmara-Harnet Avenue-surrounded by some of the most important monuments of the city: Catholic Cathedral, theatre and cinema impero, asmara others. Quiet place to stroll and stopping for a drink in the many clubs that surround it.
