A postcard from Eritrea: Great Regards from Asmara | أسمرة


Postcard
Asmara is the capital city and largest settlement in Eritrea, home to a population of around 600,000 people. Eritrea's capital is situated on the eastern edge of Eritrea's highland plateau.

Asmara enjoys a great climate, clean and picturesque streets, attractive palm trees, and a reputation as one of the safest, calm and alluring capital cities in Africa. The name is derived from Arbaete Asmara which literally means, in the Tigrinya language, "the four (villages) are united".

(upper left picture) The cathedral of Asmara, built in 1922.
