Northern Jordan is the most fertile region of Jordan. Decorated with rolling hills and long wadis, the north mainly consists of agriculture land, olive groves and forests. Springs abound, and streams flow through the valleys from fall through spring. The countryside is sometimes reminiscent of Tuscany and is especially beautiful in the spring with its carpets of wildflowers.
It is this area that is also rich in Roman cities such as the Decapolis of Jerash, Um Qais, Pella; as well as the castle of Ajloun.
