Mount Nebo, Madaba

4.1
#1 of 13 in Things to do in Madaba
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.

  • Just wow. This is the first biblical site I've been to. It's super special. Also the church that preserves the mosaic from some of the early churches here is absolutely beautiful. Very well presented and kept. Highly recommend going here. Oh and it's not part of the Jordan pass, so expect to pay 2JD pp.
  • I have been here several times and it is a great view point to look into Israel from the point of view of Moses when God promised the land to the people, that is when the sky is clear. Sometimes it gets dusty and visibility is not too good. Of course there is the serpentine snake cross that is a beautiful landmark overlooking the view as well.
  • Great mountain where the Prophet Moses was passed the ten commandments according to the bible. Lovely atmosphere. Has breathtaking views of the dead sea.
  • An amazing experience. The views are fabulous. Mosaics in the church are incredible. A very moving experience. Highly recommended.
  • Feel the complete outdoor views for the real wilderness of the torturing desert while come visiting the mountain that must be the pride of most Jordanians as many tourist from many religions also attracted to have a travelling spiritual visits ...
