Madaba’s main attraction is its magnificent Byzantine mosaics, drawing many visitors, especially since the creation of an archaeological park.

Visitors to the town should not miss these magnificent pavement decorations, before heading off to see the surrounding Biblical sites of Mount Nebo and Bethany, where Christ was baptised.
