Follow in the Footsteps of Moses at Mt. Nebo
Pilgrims since the Byzantine period have claimed this spot to be where Moses finally saw the Promised Land, and where the prophet died. Today, the Moses Memorial Church here (a modern construction, built over an earlier Byzantine church) is home to a superb collection of 6th-century mosaics, while a lookout platform nearby allows you to take in Moses' view—although if you want to see more than haze, come early in the morning when clear skies are likely.
