Create an itinerary including Mount Nebo
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Mount Nebo by using our Madaba road trip planner.

  • I learned quite a number of things during this visit - about Moises journey and how it ended here, on Mt Nebo. The views of Jericho on the Israeli side, of Jordan river etc were unparalleled!

  • One of the best historical and biblical sites to visit in Amman. The place is very well maintained and very clean. The mosaic floor in the church is well preserved and a must see.
