Asmara is the capital of Eritrea. It is located some 60 km inland at an altitude of 2432 meters. It is a lot cooler and more pleasant than Massawa on the coast.Temperature ranges from -5°C (winter night-temp.) and +35°C ( summer day-temp.)

The city is a nice mixture of Italian colonial buildings and Eritrean architecture. Asmara's very diverse cultural heritage is obvious: three of the most prominent landmarks in the city are the Catholic Cathedral, the Al Khulafa Al Rashiudin Mosque and the ENda Mariam Coptic Cathedral.

Not far from the Cathedral is the very buzy shuq district, with its stalls of fruits and vegetables,  spices, chickens and eggs, used furniture, ceramics, and clothes. Side by side with the stalls are small workshops and shops.

The city is the cleanest city in Africa. Walking in the streets of Asmara surrounded by palms colorfull trees makes you feel in pardise.It is a place that must be visited.
