Petra Jordan

This impressive 312-BC, cut-from-the-rock creation remained hidden from the Western world until 1812, when a Swiss explorer introduced the ancient city in stone to the world. Described by prize-winning poet John William Burgon as a “rose-red city half as old as time,” Smithsonian Magazine has rightly included Petra as one of the 28 places you need to see before you die.
