Jonathan Manser went with the Architecture Club study tour to the capital of Eritrea, Asmara.

Asmara is a world heritage site featuring an unrivalled streetscape of mid twentieth century modernist architecture. The trip also included a remarkable steam train journey and a visit to the wonderful semi deserted port city of Aswara with it’s wonderful coral stone buildings.

Below are a selection of photos of highlights of the trip and the link to the video of the train journey.
