The pink city "Petra", "the stone" in Greek, derives from the Aramaic toponym "RQM" (pronounced "rekem" or "rakm") (pronounced "rekem" or "rakmou"), which means "two-coloured". Geology is indeed at the origin of the red city, entirely carved in soft sandstone. In total, nearly 800 monuments, mostly tombs, are scattered over 100 km2 of Petra. A wonder of the world and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is the most famous site in Jordan and even the Middle East.

At the end of the Siq, the most majestic monument of Petra, "Al Khazneh" or the "Treasure" with its Greco-Roman decoration, suddenly appears. What a dazzling spectacle of beauty...
