    La recensione prevede due chiavi di lettura : se si considera 'aspetto mistico del luogo ( sito dove la bibbia dice sia stato Battezzato Gesu' Cristo ) merita 5 pallini ; se si prende invece in esame le cose visitabili l'escursione in se e' abbastanza deludente. Infatti la visita prevede solo la presunta fonte battesimale , la tomba di Giovanni Battista ( presunta) il fiume Giordano ( qui ormai ridotto a un rigagnolo ) e la vista solo dal fuori di qualche chiesa ( tutte le correnti cristiane hanno qui eretto una loro chiesa).

    Ta tid, läs på. Vandra i stillhet och ta in naturen, historien, vyerna. En fantastisk plats. Amfiteatern bredvid Lutherska kyrkan är en fin plats att avsluta med, sitta och se solen gå ner över bergen där man vid klart väder ser både Jerusalem och Betlehem.
