A nature reserve spread around the ruins of an old fortress which served as the residence of the royal family once. The site includes several relics and a cemetery, in addition to the ruined fortress. Today, it is a sacred site visited by the Merina people on pilgrimages. Ambohimanga is actually the name of the hill on which the royal keep is sited, which makes it a suitable location for hiking as well. Conveniently located in the outskirts of the city, Ambohimanga Hill is about 30 kilometres from the Queen’s Palace, and 24 kilometres from central Antananarivo.
