    The Street of Facades

    by Paul2001 Written Dec 23, 2003

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Street of Facades is actually a series of minor tombs built by the Nabataeans. They are not amongst the most interesting sites at Petra but worth visiting just the same. The Street of Facades is located as you approach the Roman Theatre from the Khasneh Tomb. Unfortunately it is here that you will find most of the hawkers that will pester you to by some cheap souvenior.

    The cat

    You can hang around in this canyon area and find caves and other interesting places, just be careful not to get lost. It is only the cat that always finds his way home :)

    Pharaun Column

    by Blatherwick Written Aug 24, 2005

    The Pharaun Column can be found on the way to the Snake Monument. There are the remains of what I believe to be a Roman Outpost nearby.

    After the not so easy climb over the Nabataean stairs, appear in front of you a wonderful landscape.

    From this point you must come back along the Siq and you can reach your car!!

    These tombs are very difficult to reach and no many tourists go there because they are nothing of specials. But if you have time you can go there and do nice walk ;)

    Sacred Vestibule

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just in front of Al-Khazneh, on the way to go to the Street of Facades, there is this sacred vestibule, that is probably connect to the rites celebrated to Al-Khazneh.

    A good guid knows some of the places that other people miss. And as some of the trails are quiet dangerous, it´s worth the money!
