The collection of churches at Lalibela in Ethiopia are built deep down into volcanic rock and are connected in a series of tunnels and crypts underground. It is no wonder that they are the unofficial Eighth Wonder of the Ancient World. In a hidden chapel, the legendary Ark of the Covenant is monitored by one guard who is never allowed to leave its side. They say it has been there for 3000 years, but no one else has seen it. Lalibela is a place of great faith with a range of mysteries. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook (@secret.passages.pod). Get in touch at https://www.secretpassagespodcast.com/.
