Little Petra

Our Jordan shore excursions will also take you to Little Petra, which is built by the Nabataeans, likely around the 1st century CE. At Little Petra you will see more rock-cut buildings, impressively designed and crafted out of cliffs and mountainsides. If Petra was not enough, then Little Petra, situated slightly further north, will really amaze you. One of the major highlight of Little Petra is The Painted House. It is a small room with a well-preserved ceiling fresco depicting birds and grapevines. This captivating fresco is a tremendously rare example of Nabataean painting that you can witness until today.
