Mount Nebo, Madaba
(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.

  • A place to enjoy the scenery, meditate, stay a while and take beautiful photos. Important cake some time stop to stay over there.

  • Wonderful place and full of culture. Wasn't too crowded, although it is high season.

  • Arrived just when the site was supposed to close. I wasn't intending to see the inside of the Church but had a wonderful time watching the sun set and taking in the breath taking scenery.
