Exploring on your Petra holiday
Petra was founded over 2000 years ago by the Nabateans, an Aradbian nomadic tribe. The city was quickly established as a powerful and wealthy capital in the region. All this money led to the spectacular monuments, temples and buildings carved from solid rock faces. A holiday to Petra offers the fantastic opportunity to experience some of the most impressive ancient architecture in the world.
Intricately carved facades, temples hewn out of the cliff wall, palaces and more await you in Petra’s long winding canyon. Your first arrival in Petra will be one of the most breath taking as you enter through the steep sided canyon to be greeted by the glorious Treasury and a towering façade and building carved deep into the solid rock.
Don’t miss a brief climb to gain panoramic views of Petra, it’s also a great way to see the size of this ancient wonder as well as the surrounding the desert.
