"Don't miss the monastry" Monastery - Al Deir Tip by Davancar

Monastery - Al Deir, Petra: 66 reviews and 120 photos


Its a bit of a climb to get up to the so called monastry but well worth the effort. You can also ride up and down on a donkey as there are plenty around but you wouldn't catch me on one of those things. The views from the top are spectacular and there is of course the obligatory tea tent.

Address: Wadi ad-Deir
Directions: The Monastery is quite a walk from the main area of Petra, follow the path at the opposite end of the Market Place.
