Madaba
It’s all about ancient mosaics in the market town of Madaba, where on the floor of the Byzantine church of Saint George, some two million colored tiles were used to create a map of the Holy Land. Fine details of fish and a gazelle being pursued by a lion stand out in the Madaba Map, which dates from the 6th century. En route to Madaba, the Hammamat Ma’in hot springs are under a waterfall in the hills above the Dead Sea.
