    Founded in the 4th century, the Ethiopian Orthodox Church is one of the world's oldest Christian churches, and represents more than two-thirds of the country's 100 million inhabitants. Some of that heritage can be traced to the octagonal-shaped, gray-stone exterior of St. George's Cathedral, which dates back to the 15th century. A pilgrimage site for Rastafarians, the church has seen Ethiopian royalty crowned and torch fires set by Italian fascists in the 1937 war. Ornately cloaked in paintings and mosaics, the Piazza cathedral's compelling history is outlined with many religious artifacts at its museum.
