Today one of the 7 wonders of the world awaits us virtually — that's none other than Petra in Jordan.

The city of Petra is one of the most famous places in the world, located south of Jordan's capital, Amman. Its location, on the caravan route that carried spices and many other products between the east and south of the Mediterranean (part of the silk road), made it prosper during the 6th century BC, when the Nabataeans took power. Already in the 6th century AD, several earthquakes and changes in trade routes led to its loss of importance.

Much later, in the year 1812, the Swiss explorer Johannes Burckhardt "rediscovered" the enclave, also calling Petra the Pink City because of the color of its stone. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985.
