The Best Mosaics in Town
Dec 2020
If you start at the visitor’s center, this will be your first port of call on the walking tour of Madaba. It’s a lovely start and is filled with multiple excellent examples of Madaba’s mosaics. The ones depicting homes/cities from the surrounding area that hang on the walls towards the entrance of the park were some of our favorites, and the large floor mosaics in Mary’s church was another highlight. You’ve come to Madaba to see mosaics and this park won’t disappoint.

Beautiful Mosiacs
Feb 2020
Madaba Archaeological Park is in the heart of the city, close to the Visitor Center.
Good explanation boards in the Park was very helpful. The park includes three Byzantine churches. One of which, Church of the Virgin Mary, which includes the Hippolytus Hall, which has one of the most beautiful mosaics. Hippolytus Hall is believed to have been a palace in the 6th century!
Do also visit St George church for its mosaic map.

Fantastic Mosiacs
Feb 2019
Our stop at Madaba was mainly for the mosaic map in the St. Georges church but it was our visit to the Madaba archaeological park which was the highlight of our Madaba visit. The mosaics inside the cathedral and the house are beautiful and intricate. The mosaics of the four seasons, the peacock and the tree of life are stunning. Do visit!

Very nice

Located in Madaba, the park has many interesting things to see from different eras. Ranging from Roman, to Byzantine, Christian and Muslim remains. Had a tour guide of a relatively young age but very sweet.

Hidden gem for mosaics
Nov 2019
This is the real place to appreciate the numerous mosaic artworks in Madaba. The remnants of Byzantine churches and mansions, although far from well maintained, offer a glimpse onto the heyday of the city. The still colourful mosaics are well worth exploring.

An impressive ancient site
Nov 2018
With a Romanian group, we admired the ancient site discovered at Madaba.
We found here the crypt of prophet Ellias, some well preserved mosaics and columns in the Byzantine Villa of Hyppolytus, or in Virgin Mary's Curch.
I believe that - this site worth a visit.
