Visit Jordan and Petra!

Petra is a historical and archaeological city and is a symbol of Jordan; has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1985 and is one of Seven Wonders of the World.

Running through the heart of Petra is the Colonnade Street, the main thoroughfare of the ancient city. Hidden beneath the paving stones lie about four centuries of Nabataean domestic architecture, some of which was revealed in the late 1950s in a British excavation led by Peter Parr.
