High in the mountains of northern Ethiopia, Lalibela is one of the most significant pilgrimage places of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church. Lalibela is celebrated for its 11 Medieval places of worship, which are hewn into the rock. The Lalibela churches are cut, all around, from delicate volcanic rock. Their design is very intrinsic: some remain as disengaged hinders in deep pits, while others have been cut into the face of a cliff. It is significantly more hard to set up a grouping or sequence for a stone slashed structure than for an ordinary one, particularly when – as at Lalibela – it is still in customary religious use. Each of the eleven houses of worship are organized in two groups and are connects with paths 11 meters (36 feet) deep. The biggest church, the place of Medhane, remains at a stature of 10 meters (33 feet), and is 33 meters (108 feet) long and 22 meters (72 feet) wide.
