Positively amazing walking the streets from centuries ago and marvelling at the creations of cave dwellings.

As I continued my walk from the Treasury to the Monastery, I noted these ancient constructions. Located against them are peddlers selling their souvenir stuffs for the tourists. Took several pictures of this atrraction.

Learned that this was the location of some ancient tombs.

The Street of Facades is the name given to a row of monumental Nabatean tombs. The Facade is situated between the Treasury and the Siq, carved into the living rock. The Facade is quite complex. It was probably used for tombs of the Nabatean upper class. The Facade is topped by a Nabatean funerary monument.

After the Treasury, the Siq gradually widens to the Street of Facades, where a series of monumental Nabataean tombs have been carved into the southern rock face, high up on the cliffs, like a series of entrances. Look for the tomb of Anesho (an ancient ruler), located at the very end above several caves, or take a break, as this is one of the few places in Petra where you are protected from direct sunlight.

A section of the route that passes in front of some tombs with huge facades carved into the rock. It starts immediately after you pass the Treasury and continues until the Theater. Along the route there are many Bedouins selling souvenirs.

The traveler who, after admiring the so-called "Treasure", continues along the Siq, after about 400mts will have the opportunity to turn left to follow the so-called "Street of the facades". The facades are tightly enclosed to each other on the same rock face, arranged on several floors, and many of them are simple, with a limited number of superimposed horizontal friezes, and even simpler openings that allow access to the inside each of them.
Apparently, the simplest of these artifacts were tombs of officials, or at least of less important personalities. However they belong to the "golden age" of Petra.
It is a site not among the excellent ones, but contributing to create the image of Petra as a whole.

I didn't think much of these when I first saw them. The closer you get, you realize how grand they are. Be sure to go inside and see the beautiful stone formations.

Just outside the Treasury and impressive but not as good as some of the other ruins. No detour required off the main track however.

We found everything about Petra to be truly amazing. There was something new around every corner. It is true that you have to be prepared to walk and climb stairs to get close to everything, but you can also appreciate the vista from the main path that takes you through the site.

The Street of Facades was farther into our exploration of Petra than the Treasury, but before we reached the Theatre. Each of the many facades is impressive on its own, although Petra is such a huge and impressive place that they also blend together. The overall impression is amazing, and if you have time to spend wandering a little more closely, they are definitely worth seeing up close.
