Continue to the Dead Sea which is considered one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the whole world.

The first city you come upon is Madaba, “The City of Mosaics” Madaba’s chief attraction – in the contemporary Greek Orthodox church of St. George – is a wonderfully vivid, 6th-century Byzantine mosaic map showing the entire region from Jordan and Palestine in the north, to Egypt in the south.

Transfer to Petra which seems to be mentioned in the Bible’s Old Testament under several possible names, including Sela and Joktheel (2 Kings 14:7).
