Fassil Restaurant was named after
King FASSIL, also known as Emperor Fasiladas (reigend
1632-1667). The founder of Gondar was Emperor Fasiladas who,
tiring of the pattern of migration that had characterized the
lifestyle of so many
of his forefathers, moved his capital here in 1636 AD.By the
late 1640s he had built a great castle
here, which stands today in a grassy compound surrounded by
other fortresses of later construction. With its huge towers
and looming battlemented walls, it seems like a piece of
medieval Europe transposed to Ethiopia.
