What Is Petra Known For?

Petra is an archaeological site of great importance within Jordan. Located in a narrow valley, near the Gulf of Aqaba between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea.

It is considered one of the wonders of the ancient world and the modern world. It is excavated and sculpted in stone, and it is thanks to its tombs and monuments carved into the reddish mountain strip that it is considered a World Heritage Site.

Petra was an ancient city in the East where the Nabataean people settled and took advantage of the fact that many trade routes both east and west would connect with the city. This helped the city to prosper and witness the passing of history.

Walk Through Petra

The tour of the ancient city can be exhausting but do not be discouraged because the wonders that are between the cliffs are worth the effort.

From the entrance of the city, the Siq, which is a path of one kilometer of cliffs to the end of it, where the world-famous monument in Jordan is located: The Treasury, Petra is a place of different architectural sites that will leave you with the open mouth.

The Royal Tombs that were excavated in the rock with engravings capture the attention of travelers as well as its Great Theater and the various temples, altars, and buildings with large columns and striking designs.

To reach certain archaeological monuments you will have to follow a hiking trail, some are simple and short, and others are steep and long. We assure you that all roads will have something that will leave you fascinated!

Activities in Petra

Petra is a fascinating ancient city, its incredible archaeological monuments are what fascinate tourists, but beyond the routes and roads that you can take to discover the tourist attractions, the place offers two very interesting activities.

The activity most chosen by travelers is getting to know the city at night.

During the walk, you will be able to listen to soft and suggestive Bedouin music in the background.
