Street of Facades, Petra

About this place

The Street of Facades leads into the main center of the ancient city of Petra, Jordan. As the name suggests, the street is flanked by several outstanding facades carved into the rock cliffs about 2,000 years ago by the Nabataeans.

The Nabataean monuments along the Street of Facades are believed to have been the tombs of senior Nabataean officials in Petra dating back to the end of the 1st century BC and the beginning of the 1st century AD.
