Asmara
Although it would be easy to think of Asmara, the Eritrean capital, solely as an Italian built colonial city, its origins actually reach back some 700 years. Originally, it is said, there were four clans living in the Asmara area on the Kebessa Plateau. Asmara was made the capital city of colonial Eritrea in preference to Massawa by Governor Martini in 1897.
