  • The Greek Orthodox Church, representing the Mosaic map of the Holy land. Will have 15 m long, is very spoiled, and it can be stepped on. Inextricable

  • I found the Mosaic map of the Holy land that is exposed in a church in Madaba very interesting. Is very preserved and shows the configuration of the Holy land at that time.

  • In this church is the mosaikkikartta, which is reportedly one of the oldest tämänä of the maps of the region. The Church can also be found in other fine mosaikkeja. Tickets can be purchased in the gift shop on the right side of the Church.
