Al-Beidha - Little Petra, Petra - Wadi Musa

One of Petra's World Heritage Sites, Al-Beidha - Little Petra stands as a remnant of Nabataean trade and living quarters, nestled deep within the canyon landscape. Carved into sandstone in the 1st century CE, the site was a popular camel stop, trade center, and temporary lodgings for traders traveling along the Silk Road. Enter through the discreet yet majestic entrance, then wind your way through meeting halls, lodgings, and remnants of hand-carved irrigation systems. Revealed to the public in 2010, the "Painted House" dining hall houses some of the best-preserved examples of Hellenistic ceiling frescoes and figurative Nabataean paintings in the world.

  • Necessarily! Most dissolves the little Petri and they do not know what they lose. The place has its own climate and interesting streets. Not on a scale like Petra but the scale of the piston is also much smaller. You can enjoy the tranquility.

  • To visit before Petra, it is suggestive and collected; its charm also comes from the presence of a few tourists and if like me you are lucky enough to be alone you will definitely enjoy the magical atmosphere that takes you back in time. It might be interesting to spend an hour there. View after Petra almost always disappoints and leaves the feeling of having only wasted time so if you have the days counted for the visit of Jordan leave it out without regrets.
