Ethiopia is a country of endless diversity. HESS TRAVEL offers you the opportunity to discover, among other interesting tourists attractions, some of Ethiopia's most colorful customs and religious ceremonies.

Many people visit Ethiopia, attracted by the remarkable manner in which ancient historical traditions have been preserved. Indeed, the ancient churches with their unique wall paintings, colorful ceremonies and rituals offer insights into the authentic world of the Old Testament. In no other country is it possible to find yourself so dramatically transported back in time or to participate with such freedom in the sacred rituals of a very ancient faith.

Ethiopia history goes back to the legendary history of the Queen of Sheba who went to Jerusalem to visit King Solomon from whom she bore a child named Menelik, the first king of Ethiopia and the founder of the Solomonic Dynasty (1000 BC).
