The churches alone are world famous and worth the trip. There is little else in the town. Weather in nice and I agree, a good guide is a must. Hotel quality is better if you choose carefully

The monolith churches are pretty incredible and the artwork inside is quite unusual. While it's pretty cool just to wander the grounds, a guide is extremely beneficial. The town of Lalibela has little else save for a weekly market that yields some interesting photo opportunities.

In terms of historical sights, the rock hewn churches of Lalibela are world-class and Lalibela was certainly the highlight of our trip to Northern Ethiopia. If you have limited time and can only visit one place in the North, this is the place to prioritize.
