    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 ...

    http://www.madote.com/ Eritrea - Asmara, the capital of the small east African country 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 architectur...

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/

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 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.

Eritrean anti-aircraft guns reportedly shot down two Ethiopian military aircraft after they had bombed an Eritrean air force base in Asmara. In response, the Ethiopian government said the airbase bombing was in retaliation for an Eritrean air attack on Mekele -- a town 200 kilometres (125 miles) north of Addis. At least five Ethiopians were wounded in that attack. The attacks came a day after Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi agreed, in principle, to a joint U-S Rwanda proposal to end the dispute. However, he also warned that his country's patience was wearing thin with Eritrea's refusal to withdraw from territory he claims it occupied a month ago. The disputed territory is some 100 miles (160 km) from the Eritrean capital, Asmara. Eritrea -- which gained its independence from Ethiopia in 1993 -- has insisted that it is not occupying any Ethiopian territory. It claims its troops are on Eritrean land as determined by colonial boundaries traced by Italy when it occupied Eritrea in 1885. The dispute has already claimed an unknown number of lives. These pictures from Zala Ambassa show Ethiopian soldiers lying where they fell. A-P-T-V also saw Eritrean forces arrest an Ethiopian soldier who had been hiding out in this bunker for 24 hours. There has also been intensive fighting in Serha -- bullet holes and shell holes riddle the houses. Many families have abandoned their shelled homes -- preferring to head away from the border. The wounded in another town under attack, Senase, which lies 10 kilometres inside Eritrea from the Ethiopian border, are being brought to this makeshift hospital. The facilities here are basic. Operations are done where patients lie. The Eritrean government has characterised the U-S-Rwanda proposal as "not controversial" but said there were still serious issues to be worked out. So, for now, the fighting looks set to continue.

English/Nat The guns were quiet in the Ethiopia-Eritrea conflict on Friday, but tension continued as the escalating clashes threaten to spiral into war. U-S and Rwandan diplomats were shuttling between the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa and the Eritrean capital Asmara to try to help resolve the conflict. 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.

http://www.madote.com/ Eritrea - Asmara, the capital of the small east African country 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 entire World.

On the occasion of the candidature of the city of Asmara-capital of Eritrea- for inscription in UNESCO’s World Heritage List, Exhibition titled 'Asmara : City of Dreams' will be held 15 June - 20 June 2017 in Paris France. 15 - 20 June 2017 in Paris 21 June 2017 In London 27 June 2017 in London 30 June 2017 in London Eritrea has submitted the candidature of Asmara -capital of Eritrea- for inscription in UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The exhibition 'Asmara : City of Dreams' is intended to support this candidature and to draw international attention to this heritage of world value. Asmara reflects urbanism and architecture inherited from fascism and Italy’s expansionist policies against what was then Abyssinia (Ethiopia). It echoes the ambivalence of modernism as well on the African continent. Asmara has developed into a unique modernist city with a mix of European-Italian and African Eritrean cultures of tolerance and cohabitation among various religions and ethnic groups.

Asmara 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 people of Eritrea will always make you feel welcome and the country will always provide a diversity of activities and experiences that will have you wanting to come back for more." "Asmara is, by any standards, a very safe, picturesque and relaxed capital. " Eritrea - The Bradt Travel Guide "Constructed almost entirely between 1936 and 1941, Asmara was effectively a blank canvas on which its Italian colonizers were able to design and build their own urban utopia in East Africa...... owing to Asmara's relative obscurity and distance from Europe, the architects and engineers who came to practice there could escape the constraints imposed on their activities in the more conservative European environment, making it an even more exceptional city" Asmara - Africa's Secret Modernist City Source: http://www.asmera.nl/ Asmara is located in E.
