Situated at an elevation of 2400 metres above sea-level, its climate is pleasantly cool, but also dry and sunny for much of the year. Architecturally, it is a real feast for the eyes. Having been the centre of Italian colonial efforts in Africa in the first part of the 20th century, Asmara was blessed with beautiful buildings that would only draw praise in Italy as well. Even after the Italians were gone, the city has managed to escape the raveges of third world development, and has amazingly even survived the wars with Ethiopia intact. Current ...

    Originally, according to Eritrean Tigrinya oral traditional history, there were four clans living in the Asmara area on the Kebessa Plateau: the Gheza Gurtom, the Gheza Shelele, the Gheza Serenser and Gheza Asmae. These towns fought each other until the women of each clan decided that to preserve peace the four clans must unite. The men accepted, hence the name Arbate Asmera. Arbate Asmara literally means, in the Tigrinya language, "the four (feminine plural) made them unite".[3] Eventually Arbate was dropped and it has been called Asmara which means "they [feminine, thus referring to the women] made them unite". There is still a district called Arbaete Asmara in the Administrations of Asmara. It is now called the Italianized version of the word Asmara. The westernized version of the name ...

http://www.madote.com/ Here's what tourists are saying about beautiful Asmara, Eritrea. ------ The capital of newly independent Eritrea, Asmara is one of the most beautiful and pleasant cities in the whole of Africa, if not anywhere in the World. Situated at an elevation of 2400 metres above sea-level, its climate is pleasantly cool, but also dry and sunny for much of the year. Architecturally, it is a real feast for the eyes. Having been the centre of Italian colonial efforts in Africa in the first part of the 20th century, Asmara was blessed with beautiful buildings that would only draw praise in Italy as well. Even after the Italians were gone, the city has managed to escape the raveges of third world development, and has amazingly even survived the wars with Ethiopia intact. Current government policies also prevent it from become yet another sprawling, polluted African capital ringed with slums. Not only is Asmara beautiful, clean and pleasantly cool, it is also a very safe and relaxed city, where one can walk around at any time of the day or night without having to worry about safety, or even more minor hassles like beggars. The locals are a very cultured lot who seem to pride themselves on their city's Italian heritage, fondly call it "Little Rome", and cafeterias and pizzerias do a roaring trade along the city's main avenue. And in case you start wondering whether all this comes at a price, you might be delighted to hear that Asmara is also among the cheapest capitals in the continent! Not surprisingly, this is one of the few places that visitors almost invariably fall in love with instantly. http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/2e789/1ebe77/ ======== If there is a country that has ever deserved the overused titles like "hidden gem" or "overlooked jewel", Eritrea is it. The mere name of this country along the Red Sea coast of East Africa tends to provoke blank looks from most people: "Eritrea??? What... err... where is it, actually???" History is partly to blame for sure. Under foreign occupation for centuries, Eritrea only appeared on the maps as an independent country in 1993, when its people have voted for leaving Ethiopia after decades of armed struggle. And ever since then, it has only hit the headlines for all the wrong reasons. So that is why Eritrea is largely unknown to the World, but what makes it a gem? First and foremost, its capital Asmara is the single most beautiful city in Africa, and an ethernal favourite of all those who have been there. Its history as an Italian colonial town has blessed it with an architectural legacy that would draw praise even in Europe. Beautiful buildings apart, the Italians have also left behind their impact on the local culture: cafeterias, pizzerias and fashionably dressed locals (including Africa's most beautiful women) make you feel far removed from the hectic, poverty-stricken and polluted cities of the rest of the continent. To further ensure a pleasant stay, Asmara's climate is as pleasant as it gets, with cool, dry, sunny weather throughout the year. Wishing for something more exotic? Asmara may feel like a piece of Italy, but out in the country you will find an amalgam of African cultures at their best. The highland plateu of southern Eritrea shares the ancient Orthodox Christian traditions of neighbouring Ethiopia, the peoples inhabiting the deserts to the west and along the Red Sea coast exhibit Muslim culture at its most colorful, while animistic, tribal Africa is represented by the Kunama and Nara of the south-west. The landscapes range from lush, cool highlands to the hottest, most desolate deserts anywhere, towns and villages exhibit a curious mixture of traditionally African and Mediterranian influences, and wildlife, while nowhere nearly as abundant as in Kenya or Tanzania, is varied and includes many rare species. Nevertheless, what really gives a lasting impression of Eritrea is her people. Eritreans are among the most educated, dignified and hospitable people I have met anywhere, and the begging, thievery and hassles encountered elsewhere in Africa quickly fade into distant memories here. I visited Eritrea in 2004, as part of a three-month-long tour of North-East Africa, that also took me to neighbouring Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Somaliland. Due to Eritrea's relationship with these neighbours getting here required quite an amount of persistance and determination, but once I arrived, I felt it was all worth it. Eritrea has immediately became my favourite country in Africa, and I can only wish to return for a longer stay in the future. If you are at all thinking about visiting this country, think no more - go! In A Nutshell: "My favourite country in Africa!" http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/2e789/e04/

In the Eritrean capital, Asmara, women marched and prayed for peace while people queued outside the offices of Eritrean airlines trying to leave the country. Eritrean women prayed and chanted to peace on the streets of the Eritrean capital of Asmara on Friday. Clashes on the Eritrea-Ethiopia border broke out on May 6 when Ethiopia accused Eritrea of occupying a swath of land along their border. The two sides differ over where Italy, the former colonial power, drew the border. Eritrean forces fought a secessionist rebellion against Ethiopia for 30 years. They realised their aims in 1993, two years after helping Ethiopian rebels under Zenawi overthrow the Addis Ababa government. Neither side reported new clashes on Friday. But the Ethiopian army poured reinforcements into the front lines south of Zala Ambessa on Friday -- ten days after Eritreans captured the town. Eritreans on the front-line were expecting retaliatory attacks after Eritrean helicopters and planes bombed the Ethiopian border town of Adigrat on Thursday, killing four civilians and wounding 30. Meanwhile, people queued up outside the Eritrean airlines offices in Asmara, trying to get out. A planeload of 125 foreigners were evacuated from Asmara on Friday -- 78 of them were Filipinos, the rest Britons, South Africans, Australians and Croatians. But many others have been unable to leave. This man lives in Germany and was visiting his family in Eritrea when the clashes started. SOUNDBITE: (English) "The situation makes me nervous, you know. Lots of people, they have work there. They want to go but they don't have a chance. That's why they are nervous." SUPER CAPTION: Mensur Mohamed, Eritrean who lives in Germany A U-S negotiating team declined comment upon their arrival in Asmara on Friday. Rwandan Vice President Paul Kagame followed and left early in the evening, according to the Eritrean presidential spokesman. There was no official comment on Kagame's quick visit.

Eritrea's Capital city of Asmara: Asmara, the capital of Eritrea, bordering the Red Sea, is referred by many expert travelers as the beautifulest city in Africa and is also home to one of the most important and exciting architectural 'discoveries' of recent years. Built almost entirely in the 1930s and early 40's by Italian and Eritrean workers, Asmara has one of the highest concentrations of modernist architecture anywhere in the world, and has evocatively been described as "the Miami of Africa." Desperate to build quickly, the colonial government of the time allowed radical architectural experimentation that would not have found favour in the more conservative European environment. Asmara therefore became one of the world's prime locations for architectural innovation during the Modern Movement. That this occurred at all is remarkable enough, but that these buildings should have survived in such numbers today makes it one of the finest modernist cities in the World. Eritrea's unique natural features: i. Danakil Depression, 100 metres below sea level with temperatures over 50° Centigrade. ii.The Great Valley Rift, runs through Eritrea. iii.Hot Springs in many locations such as Akwaar, Mai Wui, Gahtelai and Arafayle. iv.The Escarpment providing spectacular views from the highland plateau to the coastal plains. v. Dahlak Archipelago off the Red Sea coast with over 350 islands and unexplored undersea wonders. Eritrea's Marine life: Coral: Healthy coral reefs around 350 islands off the Red Sea coast including the Dahlak Archipelago. Flat reef gardens and cliffs that slope down to the depths of the ocean floor. Varieties ranging from large mounds of brain coral (Porites) to branching Acropora; Varieties of fish: Angelfish - blue and yellow Arabian, the yellowbar and the striped emperor. Butterfly fish - the orangeface, and the brilliant yellow-masked variety with a black face patch, the endemic bannerfish with its elongated dorsal fin. Wrass - brilliant blue-green, blue-striped and other colourful varieties. Parrotfish, groupers, damselfish, animonefish, dascyllus, scissortail sergeant, blue and orange sunrise dotty back, small pipefish, red squirrelfish and cube-like box fish. Larger fish - jacks, snappers, emperors, sweetlips and barracudas. Varieties of crabs under small coral, black, white or red sea cucumbers and snails on the sandy floor beside jellyfish are common. Eritrea's Beaches: Wide sandy beaches and calm seas along the Red Sea coast include Gugusum, Buri Peninsula, Zula Bay, Mersa Gulbub, Mersa Ibrahim and Ras Kuba. Dahlak Archipelago with over 350 islands, Dissei island and Assab Bay islands also offer sandy beaches and ample opportunities for underwater exploration. Eritrea's Bird life: varieties of francolins, sunbird, shrikes, canaries, turacou, serins, starling, green pigeon, oriole, barbet, robin boubou and babblers in Semenawi Bahri; love-birds, wood dove, coucal, warblers, prinia, cisticola, woodpeckers, cameroptera, crombeck, varieties of parrots, warblers, tit and hornbill in Solomuna; coucal, Abyssinian rollers, scimitarbill, flocks of starling, buffalo weavers, varieties of grouse and wagtail in the scrubland and Red Sea coast; stork, herons, crab plovers, larks, sparrow hawk, little green bee-eaters, golden sparrow, speckle-fronted weavers, chatterers and kingfisher in Massawa and environs; francolin, massive thick-billed raven, varieties of pigeon, hornbill, wheaters, turtle dove, wagtail and seed-eaters from Massawa to Asmara.

There is still a district called Arbaete Asmara in the Administrations of Asmara. It is now called the Italianized version of the word Asmara. The westernized version of the name is used by a majority of non-Eritreans, while the multilingual inhabitants of Eritrea and neighboring peoples remain loyal to the original pronunciation, Asmera. Asmara is situated in Eritrea's central Maekel Region. It is known for its well-preserved colonial Italian modernist architecture.[2] The city is divided into thirteen districts or administrative areas: Acria, Abbashaul, Edaga Hamus, Arbaete Asmara, Mai Temenai, Paradizo, Sembel, Godaif, Maekel Ketema or Downtown, Tiravolo, Gejeret, Tsetserat and Gheza Banda. Asmara (Tigrinya: ኣስመራ?, Asmera), known locally as Asmera (meaning "They [feminine plural] made them unite" in Tigrinya), is the capital city and largest settlement in Eritrea. Home to a population of just over 1,000,000 inhabitants,[1] it sits at an elevation of 2,325 metres (7,628 ft). The city is located at the tip of an escarpment that is both the northwestern edge of the Eritrean highlands and the Great Rift Valley in neighbouring Ethiopia.
