Petra (Arabic: البتراء, Al-Batrāʾ; Ancient Greek: Πέτρα), located in the south of the country, is the most visited site in Jordan. The city was built in 400 a.c., being the capital of the Nabatean empire, which is considered one of the greatest civilization in history. The city is carved into red-rose rocks and it extends over 40 square kilometers, famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system, Petra is considered one of the seven “new” wonders of the world. I couldn’t stop thinking about the amount of hours that someone spent to carve those facades into the rocks, extracting a precise architecture with chisels and hammers.
