Visit Jericho

YOUR DAY IN JERICHO

A journey to discover one of the most suggestive places in the Holy Land: Jericho, one of the oldest cities in the world. An oasis in the desert 250 meters below sea level that has seen human history go by.

NOT TO BE MISSED:

  • Climb the Mount of Temptations to visit the Greek Orthodox monastery perched on Mount Quarantine, the place where Jesus was tempted by the devil while fasting in the Desert.
  • See the Greek Orthodox monastery Saint Gorge in Koziba.
  • Visit the Source of Elisha, a source of pure water that has quenched Jericho and its inhabitants for millennia.
  • Visit the Hisham Palace, the winter residence of the Umayyad caliph with one of the largest mosaics in the Mediterranean and the famous representation of the tree of life.
  • Get to know the Mosaic Centre laboratory and its craftsmen engaged in the restoration and production of mosaics. Have lunch with them, savoring the dishes of real Palestinian cuisine.
