Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
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.
