A long strip of huge rock carvings that looks like a city luring you away from the attractions of the Treasury at Petra. You don't have to climb or hike, they are so immense you can enjoy them from a distance.

The Royal Tombs are worth a side trip. The colours of the rock are simply amazing. Don't miss it or the other sites just around the corner from it such as the Tomb of Sextius Florentius.

This is the most famous spot at Petra, featured in a few movies. What an amazing achievement, so many years ago, just to look good. Or for the sake of art. This is one of many dozens of facades. But it's obvious many actually lived...More
