Las iglesias de Lalibela

El otro lugar donde celebran la Epifania el día 19 es Lalibela. Es más conocido, pero no tiene piscina sagrada. Las iglesias talladas en la roca de Lalibela -allá por el 1200- son Patrimonio de la Humanidad. La de San Jorge es la mejor conservada y Biet Mariam, la más antigua. Es ciudad santa y sus templos aprovechan cuevas naturales y están excavados en la pared o en el suelo rocoso. Los sacerdotes, con túnicas de colores, realizan ese día una especie de bautismo colectivo.

The churches of Lalibela

Lalibela is the other place where they celebrate the Epiphany on the 19th. It’s better known but has no sacred pool. The churches built with the Lalibela stones – around the year 1200 - are Heritage of Humanity. The San Jorge church is the best preserved and Biet Mariam, is the oldest. It is a holy city where natural caves were used for the temples that were excavated in the wall or they were built on the rocky ground. The priests, wearing colored robes, perform on that day a kind of collective baptism.
