Discover Eritrea's rich, ancient history at Metera, which showcases the remains of the city through its millennia-long history. Between the 10th century BCE and the 9th century CE, two large and prosperous kingdoms were formed here--the D’mt and the Aksumite kingdom. After extensive archaeological excavations, parts of both the capitals were found. Take a guided tour to learn interesting facts about the site while seeing some remarkably preserved pieces of history, such as the ancient Rashiki temple, monuments, and even the entrance to the royal palace.
