Photographer's Note

A magic moment that everybody has been in Petra can't forget!!!

The Treasury (as the other monuments carved in stone in Petra Valley) is probably a tomb. It was built during the kingdom of Nabateans, about I century B.C or A.D.
It stands at the end of the Siq, the long, suggestive path to enter in Petra Valley.

This incredible archaeological area was discover, for the "European world", in 1812 by Johann Burckhardt, a adventurous man that was led into the lost city of Petra by Bedounis, that live in this place from centuries.

Longroute, Fellini, stelli, niphredil76 has marked this note useful
