Gondar:The city's unique imperial precinct contains a dozen castles built by various emperors during this 236 year period. Although the earliest of these castles was built by Fasiladas following the expultion of the Portuguese, at first sight the architecture seems to reflect Moorish-European influences.

the Axumite tradition and a strong affinity with contemporary styles of building in South Arabia.
