Create an itinerary including Mount Nebo
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 nice view, nice mosaics, but not much else. A church perched on a hill, may be interesting to religious travellers.

  • One of the best historical and biblical sites to visit in Amman. The place is very well maintained and very clean. The mosaic floor in the church is well preserved and a must see.
  • A historical site. Clean well managed and maintained. Nice views, the mosaic is the major attraction. Good facilities, nearby parking
