3.2/5 based on 850+ 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.

  • The view is beautiful, but it is the only real interest (you can enjoy from the road or from the good restaurant next door) in addition to a beautiful mosaic. The Church is closed for many years and is not ready to reopen. In short the place worth the money for the pilgrims who come to see the stele of Moses and the monument commemorating the visit of Jean-Paul II.

  • the church is closed for renovation during our visit, so the only thing to do was to look at Israelis territories far down on a platform 
  • Site visit end of September 2016 and everything is still closed. 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.
