The Nabataeans established this great engineering marvel and made it their capital more than 2,000 years ago due to the area's natural fortification. 30,000 people lived hidden among the canyons, which was admired for its massive architecture and refined culture. They diverted all the trade routes so that Petra was at the centre of all the important civilizations in the ancient world.
A tour of Petra starts either by walking or riding on horseback, but only as far as the entrance of the canyon Siq. The 'Siq' is one mile long, and the ancient road meanders around many bends and turns along on the way. Then suddenly - a magnificent view of one the most impressive facades in the world - the Treasury.
After the Treasury, each corner brings a new surprise. The ancient road leads to the Royal section, which includes houses and tombs for the Royal Family, the Theatre, the shops, the Court of Justice, the Corinthian Palace, Silk Palace, the Palace Tomb, the Nymphium, a Roman colonnaded street, the Arched Gate, and the Daughter's Palace.
