  • A stop along the tourist trail. There are several mosaics on the floor and an ancient Roman road outside. The mosaics are nice to see if you enjoy this type of ancient ruin. There are several tourist shops around the area to buy souvenirs or to get something to eat or drink.
  • Must see! Rich in explanations and layers of the different cultures that overlapped in the course of history. The mosaic map is a superb sight
  • Beautifull small museum where guide takes You 1 JD /person for a very short guidance, although its free im the Jordan visa pass
  • Our stop at Madaba was mainly for the mosaic map in the St. Georges church but it was our visit to the Madaba archaeological park in Feberuary 2019, which was the highlight of our Madaba visit. The mosaics inside the cathedral and the house are beautiful and intricate. The mosaics of the four seasons, the peacock and the tree of life are stunning. Do visit!
  • Fantastic place, everyone is strongly encouraged to visit it
