Mount Nebo, Madaba

(3.4/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Join thousands of religious pilgrims and curious visitors at Mount Nebo, a 1,000 m (3,300 ft) ascent from which many believe the prophet Moses first saw the "Promised Land." Because of its mention in the Hebrew Bible, a chapel was built there in the 4th century CE and later expanded into a basilica. Today, the Franciscan order oversees the mountain, where they operate a monastery and archaeological center. While there, tour the memorial church devoted to Moses and the ancient Byzantine mosaics unearthed and preserved there. A visit to Mount Nebo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Madaba travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • Mount Nebo is where Moses spotted the land promised by God to the Hebrew people. The place has a good infrastructure for tourists and gives us a nice view of the region. A pity that the abundant fog prevented me from having the same vision all by Moses in ancient times.
