Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean caravan-city, situated between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia.

It is one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, where ancient Eastern traditions blend with Hellenistic architecture.
