Mount Nebo

Nebo is believed to be the mountain from which Moses was granted the view of the Promised ‎Land and the mountain on which he is buried. It has an important religious significance for many ‎faiths.‎

On Mount Nebo, there is a tourism complex called La Storia. A tour of the museum is available ‎to visitors, who can learn about the religious background of Mount Nebo and the neighborhood. ‎The museum is currently working on a project that will utilize 3.5 million pieces to construct the ‎largest mosaic in the world, measuring 30 meters long. Visitors can get involved in the initiative ‎by adding a piece to the mosaic, which will show the complete King’s Highway journey. For ‎visitors of all ages, the museum also provides a range of workshops.‎

In the fourth century, a church was built to honor the site of Moses’ burial. Since then, the church ‎has been transformed into a basilica and now features a number of 530-year-old mosaics. The ‎mosaics, which depict images of nature and hunting—a popular past time in the Byzantine era—‎have been carefully maintained.‎

A sculpture called The Brazen Serpent can be found atop Mount Nebo. The sculpture has gained ‎so much popularity that it is now regarded as Mount Nebo’s emblem. It is a representation of the ‎savage snake that Moses erected in the Bible to protect people from the plague. One was ‎supposed to be shielded from the fatal sickness by catching a glimpse of the serpent.‎
