Lonely Planet review

Though its early history is murky (it was likely built in the 17th century though some say 18th) this attractive palace once served as a retreat for Haile Selassie, a residence for Italian generals and a torture chamber for the Derg. It’s now under renovation to serve as a museum of Gonder’s history that will include some of Haile Selassie’s furniture and objects found at the palace and Portuguese Cathedral at Gorgora.
