Archaeological sights in Madaba
- Sort by:
This important archaeological site in the heart of Madaba is still under excavation and there's not much to see. Like many sites around Madaba, it was discovered by accident by a local when he started digging the foundations for his house. It contains remains of a Byzantine villa and parts of an Iron Age wall or fortification, the largest of its kind in Jordan and visible from above the arch on the top level.
To get the most from this site you'll need a trained eye. Tread carefully as much remains to be excavated.
Some careful restoration and excavation in the early 1990s led to the creation of the Archaeological Park, a collection of ruins and mosaics from the Madaba area.
