Petra is an inheritance that has been left by the Nabateans who were brave warriors and very industrious. They were also famous for their graffiti. The Nabateans settled in southern Jordan more than 2000 years ago. Petra's peculiarity is its wonderful location, in the heart of the desert. The city is located in the mountains, which depending on time of the day, will change colors into pink, dark red, purple or orange. On the way to Petra, you will have an overview of Wadi Rum. Arriving in Petra you will pass between the cliffs through the awesome Siq, a huge crack in the sandstone 1,2 km. long.
The most famous Petra's monument, the Treasury is the completion of the Siq. In addition, hundreds of building, facades, crypts, baths, mourning halls, temples, and, of course, the amphitheaterr of three thousand seats built in the 1st century B.C., are of great interest.
