Falls Church, Virginia, USA

Gondar's castle complex (from the 1600) is still very well preserved and really amazing to explore. Admission costs 100 birr. There are also tons guides offering their services (expect to pay about another 100 birr for a guide --plus a tip). A good guide is definitely worth it -- there are so many structures and they are fairly spread out --and the history is fascinating. There are also tour companies along the road just outside the complex which can arrange English speaking guides.

This attractive castle and palace complex could easily be at home in medieval Europe. A nice sight that will satisfy your inner child's desire to roam through a castle relatively undisturbed (during off-peak seasons).
