Im going to explain a world wonder: Petra. I havechosen this world wonder because it is an incredibleold city excavated in the mountains. Petra is in the south Jordan. Petra was on the oldroad between Egypt and Arabia and Syria, Greeceand Rome. So, Petra was an important commercialcity. To arrive in Petra, you must go past into TheSiq, a long road excavated in the mountains. The Siqhas tall walls and it is too narrow.
The most important building in Petra is theKahneh (the treasure). It’s tall and it’s made of pinkstone. But you can only see the front of the Kahanehbecause the rest of the building is inside themountain. A lot of years ago, there were a lot of buildingsinside and outside the mountains, but there was aterrible earthquake that destroyed all the buildingsexcept the buildings that were into the mountains.
UNESCO has described it as "one of the mostprecious cultural properties of mans culturalheritage”. Petra was chosen by the BBC as one of"the 40 places you have to see before you die". Petra was the site where many movies havebeen filmed in this special place (Indiana Jones, TheMummy, …). Petra is the best of one of the best worldwonders.
