Top Tips

If you care to be noticed even more than usual, you can actually climb the stairs that wind around the monument for an urban view.
While it may look like the pope’s hat has been attacked by primary school students, the shape of the Sidamo Monument is said to represent the leaf of the false banana plant.
Don’t worry if you forget your own camera as a gaggle of local entrepreneurs will be sure to have theirs to hand.
