“Find a town that begins with the Word ‘go’. When you find it, you will proclaim it the capital of your kingdom. After Gojam, Gouzara and Gorgora, came Gondar.     The Royal City of Gondar was founded by... more the Ethiopian Negus Fasilides in the 17th century. Several of his successors built their palaces In the same court, forming a complex of rare Beauty. The site was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1979. Not far away, The ruins of a more ancient castle left in solitude have another story to tell. Gondar is 50 kilometers north of Lake Tana, 700 kilometers north of Addis Ababa and nestles in the foothills of the Semien mountains at an altitude of 2200 meters above sea level. Gondar, founded by King Fusillades in 1936 was the capital of Ethiopia for nearly 200 years.             This fact is reflected by the number of palace buildings in the castle compound. The city’s main imperial precinct, known as the Royal Enclosure, covers an area of 7.7 hectares and Contains five castles raised walkways and connecting tunnels surrounded by high stone walls. The oldest of these is the Castle of Fasiledes, built of stone in the mid-17th century, reflecting a number of influences, mainly Axumite, Portuguese and Indian.
