The mosaic map on the floor at St. George is the most famous of these mosaics. Journey 817 metres above sea level to Mt. Nebo overlooking the Jordan Valley, where Moses is believed to have had his first glimpse of the Promised Land. Then visit Kerak Castle, one in a chain of Crusader fortresses built across Jordan in the 12th Century, before arriving into Petra this evening.
