    Bethany Beyond the Jordan "The Baptism Site"

    The site where it all began. The site where Jesus Christ was baptized by John.

    This site marks the beginning of Jesus's mission and the beginning of Christianity, thus making it one of the three holiest Christian sites in the world.

    The Baptism Site is less than half an hour away from the hotel.

  • Mount Nebo

    Mount Nebo

    It is the place where Prophet Moses was buried and the most revered holy site in Jordan. When atop this mountain, one can see, as Prophet Moses did, the vast panorama that encompasses the Jordan River Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho, and Jerusalem, often referred to as the Holy Land. Mount Nebo’s first church was built in the late 4th century to mark the site of Prophet Moses’ death. It remains a place of pilgrimage for Christians.
