UNESCO has described it as “one of the most precious cultural properties of man’s cultural heritage“. Petra was chosen by the BBC as one of “the 40 places you have to add to your all time must-see bucket list”

In October, 1917, T.E Lawrence, as part of a general effort to divert Turkish military resources away from the British invasion of North Africa, led a small force of Syrians and Arabians in defending Petra against a much larger combined force of Turks and Germans.
