  • The cathedral itself looks good but the surrounding gate around the compound is filthy, and there are pickpockets all over the area. You wouldn't believe me, but i witnessed a "lady" pull down her pants, and for lack of a better term... poop on the sidewalk right next to one of the gates 🤮💩😷 There is garbage all around the place and the amount of homeless beggers is saddening being that it looks like the cathedral has money. This area is 100% not safe at night, there are no lights and countless people sleeping all around the compound. Something wrong is going on here and they need to fix it.
  • It’s beautiful inside and out side, also considered as the largest church in Ethiopia.
