one of the seven wonders of the world
Since the summer of 2007, Petra has been considered as one of the seven wonders of the world, for many reasons. The Nabateans dug a city-sanctuary in the desert, in the huge rocks that rose up in that inhospitable land. The result is a magical city that only reveals itslef to those travelers who dare to face the sun and the Jordanian desert. The legend is such that this enclave even appears in certain films, the most famous being, perhaps, Indiana Jones.
