DAYS 3 – 4 • Petra---Movenpick PetraEnroute to Petra, visit the city of Madaba. Once there, see the Madaba Mosaic Map, an ancient map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, covering the floor of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George. Mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, proceed to the ancient rectangular walled city of Umm ar-Rasas. It was fortified by he Romans, and local Christians were still embellishing it with Byzantine-style mosaics well over 100 years after the start of the Muslim Umayyad rule. Just outside the city walls is the recently unearthed Church of Saint Stephen with its perfectly preserved floor mosaic. Umm ar-Rasas is a UNESCO world heritage site. Visit Shoubak Castle dating from the early 1100’s, the same turbulent Crusaders period as Kerak.
Visit Petra, the Red Rose City. Take a short horse ride to see the giant red mountains and vast mausoleums of one of the greatest wonders ever wrought by Nature and Man. Entrance to the city is through the East Siq, a narrow gorge with the first glimpse of Al-Khazneh (Treasury). The Treasury is just the first of many wonders that make up Petra. There are obelisks, temples, sacrificial altars, and colonnaded streets. Overlooking the valley, is the impressive Ad-Deir Monastery. Meals: BLD
