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.

One of the places of interest in Jordon. Very good and high scenic view of places in Israel. Moses went up there before the Jews entered the promised land.
Holy place for Christianity.. it’s very high place and vantage point to check out Israel . Ancient mosaic arts preserved here.
