UMM QAYS

Tour Description

“Jordan’s historical northern cities”

Site of the famous miracle of the Gadarene swine, Gadara was renowned in its time as a cultural centre. It was the home of several classical poets and philosophers, including Theodorus, founder of a rhetorical school in Rome, and was once called “a new Athens” by a poet. Perched on a splendid hilltop overlooking the Jordan Valley and the Sea of Galilee, Gadara is known today as Umm Qays, and boasts an impressive colonnaded street, a vaulted terrace, and the ruins of two theatres.

The Al-Himma therapeutic hot springs are located around 10km north of Umm Qays and were once highly regarded by the Romans. "Visit Jordan"
