The oldest known depiction of the Holy Land, Madaba Mosaic Map lets you see sacred lands from Egypt to Lebanon from a centuries-old perspective. Housed within an early Byzantine church, the map dates back to the 6th century and provides the earliest accurate depiction of the Middle East, focusing on Jerusalem. Look over this carefully excavated mosaic, with millions of colorful stones depicting an ancient landscape of Biblical locations, events, and regions that predate modern cartography. Drop by the gift shop to pick up a few mementos of your visit.
