This is ghost town. I’m really sorry about this. Nothing to see in Massawa. But I hope that one day Massawa will be same like 20 years ago.

This is a complete ruin. It's a pity, it used to have to be beautiful. Imperial lions still guard the entrance.

The remains of the destructed palace tells you of its heyday before the war. Even today the palace looks to have an amazing architecture. It is unfortunate to see this site.

interesting sight of ruins just near Dahlak Hotel in Massawa. The cupola has completely vanished in the last 4 years.
