Ruin
On a limestone hill in the center of the desert, the World Heritage Site of Nabatean Avdat Acropolis represents one of the most important cities on the ancient Incense trade route. Founded in the 3rd century BCE and abandoned in the 7th due to a violent earthquake, the city hosted Nabataeans, Romans, and Byzantines. Explore the last remaining relics and ruins of the metropolis, once teeming with agricultural enterprise and benefiting from the great wealth accumulated from perfume and spice trade along the Mediterranean coast. See the remains of the city's fortress, churches, army camp, and houses. To visit Nabatean Avdat Acropolis on your trip to Mitspe Ramon, use our Mitspe Ramon family vacation planner.
