Dinner at a local restaurant in Jerash. Road to Ajlun located in the north of the country for the visit of the castle of Ajlun (Qal’at Ar-Rabad).

People of Arab origin, they thus founded one of the most beautiful civilizations which dominated all of Transjordan in the 7th century BC. Petra, at the crossroads of the roads linking Arabia, Egypt, Syria and Palestine, became a very important transit point. Deserted at the end of the Byzantine era, the lost city was only found in 1812 by the Swiss traveler Burckhardt.
It would theoretically take a week to visit the whole site. One day will however be enough to appreciate all the beauty of the main monuments and their magnificent facades concentrated in the central Siq and the surrounding mountains. You will undoubtedly be won over very quickly by the majesty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. The variations of light, the erosion combined with the natural components of the rock generate splendid combinations of colors which contribute to give all its singularity to Petra. Dinner on site.
