Tigray

Tigray is Ethiopia's best-kept secret. This northernmost region of the country was the birthplace of Ethiopia's Axumite Empire, and among the first regions to have embraced Christianity, a heritage still visible in the numerous rock churches that dot its rugged landscape.

Ethiopia - Historic Route & Tigray

It is difficult to pick a favourite place but I think Gheralta and the remote rock hewn churches just take it.
