I went to this place with my dad and few friends. It is located on a very higher hill or mountain. The view from this place is just unbelievable.

I loved visiting Entoto Mountain! The church is so beautiful in all of its color...hire a tour guide to soak up more information about the grounds. Well worth a stop!

Nice and quiet place to visit, with the church, the museum and the Imperial Palace. Also a nice view over the city.

No english signs in the museum, very few items on display and a local guide who speaks some language we could not understand, but seem to have some english words. They charge 100 per person, which is a joke for what you can see. The church was closed, but the view from up there is nice

Though the church is tourism wise average, it is quite popular with the locals.The view and the climb on the Entoto Hill is interesting.The accompanying museum is avoidable, so also the ancient palace of past Abyssinian ruler.
