  • Free for Jordan pass holder. You can find the remains of several Byzantine churches, including the mosaics of the church. One of the best sightseeing spot of Madaba. Have the information of the individual spot available in English. Recommended
  • A guide proposed his services. We had a wonderful tour. Don't hesitate.
  • This "park" is an open air museum with some large, beautiful and intricate mosaics from the Byzantine era. It's located in the center of the Madaba town at walkable distance to other sites like St George's Church & John the Baptist's Church. Some of the big mosaics are preserved in place and they are the best part of this park. A lot of the mosaics are cut out of their place and displayed on frames - a few of them are quite detailed and beautiful. There's also a mosaic school nearby but it was closed when were were there.
  • Not a lot to see but it's for free and the mosaics are beautiful. We were quiet late so probably during the day it's more beautiful.
  • An excellent collection of mosaics from all over Jordan collected for the sake of preservation and protection, we have been guided by excellent tourguid. Across the road the is a nice workshop that is specialized in mosaic making with good prices as well.
