Mount Nebo, Madaba
Categories: Historic Sites, Sacred & Religious Sites, Nature & Parks, Tourist Spots
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.

Not only the Church, but also the esplanade where the cross! Only a small museum is accessible but without real interest, as well as a very beautiful mosaic barely protected under a Bedouin tent. Still the glance at the "promised land". Blah, blah... It is beautiful but Ditto from the road.show original
