Jordan – Petra

Petra, Jordan has often been called “The Red City,” or the “The Lost City of Stone,” or known for its famous backdrop in the movie, “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.” Located in the southwestern corner of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, this UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the new “Seven Wonders of the World” was once a thriving trading center and the capital of the Nabataean empire between 400 B.C. and A.D. 106.

For thousands of years, Petra remained a lost city, unknown to the modern world. Discovered by Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burckhardt in 1812, visitors have come from around the globe to explore its magnificent and fascinating architecture.
