This city will leave us breathless….at first we see Dijin House and Obelisk Tomb, the Siq, an impressive narrow gorge that takes us to the treasury. This ancient main entrance with its impressive rocky landscape, contains numerous testimonies to the religion and bas-relief depicting camel caravans and Kings half busts. The Treasury is a carved stone structure, built to house the Areta III tomb.
Let’s continue our visit entering the Street of Facades, here there are more than 40 tombs, carved into the rocks. After that, we reach the top of the Jebel Madbah and then down to temples, tombs, triclinium, palace and Byzantine Church, famous for its floor mosaics.
The ancient Theater hosts around 3000 audience and the orchestra section was carved from the rock!
In the old Roman part of the city,with entrance on the Roman road Via nova Traiana, we could admire the Great Temple, dedicated to the Nabatean divinities, Qasr al-Bint
ruins, the palace of Pharaoh's daughter and the medieval castle ruins.
Along the path that leads to the Monastery, we could see the biggest monument of the entire site: the Winged Lions Temple.
And now… it’s selfie time! The most popular place, with an amazing view on the hills and the Treasury of Petra.
