When touring the World Heritage Site of Petra, stop by and admire Street of Facades, a series of tombs carved into the cliffs just outside of the heart of the ancient city. Situated right by the famous “Treasury,” the road is fringed with sandstone cliffs that house Nabatean tombs. Inspect the elaborately carved entrances and facades of the tombs, some of them high up on the towering cliffside, and admire the variety of hues and nuances of the sandstone. Take the guesswork out of planning a Petra - Wadi Musa vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

  • If you do not deviate for a path that can only be done by athletic visitors, after the Treasury, towards the tombs and the theater, it is inevitable to walk the path of the facades. Of course, after the emotion aroused by the sight of the Treasury, these facades tend to strike less but, on the return.....instead... they appreciate it more....

  • You can't miss it, it is good for a stop if you are going for the Treasury but not that fancy indeed.  more »
  • There are so many similar structures in Petra that I didn't even pay closer attention. This street is between Treasury and along the way to Monastery.  more »
