interesting sight of ruins just near Dahlak Hotel in Massawa. The cupola has completely vanished in the last 4 years.

We were told that Haile Selassie had stayed here when he was on his imperial travels and that, after the building's destruction in the war with Ethiopia, it had been left in ruins as a monument to the wickedness and futility of empire.

Date of experience: April 2016
Thank BPJH
