Abstract:The Jesuit mission in Ethiopia, which extended from 1557 to 1632, produced important architectonic constructions. Most of these constructions were erected in the provinces of Dämb?ya, Bägemb?r and Goggam, to the north, east and south of Lake Tana. since 2006, a Spanish archaeological team from the Complutense University of Madrid has been doing surveys and excavations at the most important Jesuit architectonic sites in the Lake Tana region. The paper reviews the work done during the previous excavations as well as the work in progress and presents the preliminary results. Bibliogr., notes, ref., sum. [Journal abstract]
