A surreal environment. The Siq leading up to the centre of Petra.
Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean caravan-city, situated between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia. Petra is half-built, half-carved into the rock, and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges.

Hi Arturo,
An incredible site and a great clear presentation of these solid majestic walls and the small winding road cutting through. The two people gives a good dimension of its size.
