Beautiful Tomb
Nov 2019 • Friends
A former Ronan Governor, Sextus Florentius wanted to be buried in Petra. He got his wish and us now interred along the line of Royal Tombs high above the main Wadi opposite to the amphitheatre.
The tombs are beautifully intricate and the differing colours if the sandstone and the affect of the shining sun give them a wonderful glow.
Look for the massive Jordan flag fluttering on the high rock to the tight as you round the treasury and straighten into the Outer Siq. The tombs are above that and a little walk beyond the flag.

An intersting tomb
Nov 2018
To arrive at Sextius Florentinus Tomb we surrounded the Royal Tombs Hill, when we walk few hundred yards. The inscription on the tomb entrance shows that Sextus Florentinus was the Roman Governor of the province.
The interesting part is that we can number the graves inside the tomb - 5 on the back wall, and 3 on the right side wall.

Great works of art.

As we make our way through the extensive paths and roadways that make up the Petra Heritage park you can't help think of the enormous undertaking that the planners and stoneworkers had to consider and go through to achieve these structures.
We heard that there are even more ruins that were the practice area for the actually city works just to get the techniques correct for the community.

Roman tomb, amazing colors
Oct 2018 • Family
This tomb is a little different from others because of the Roman touch in its architecture. The tomb is huge and beautiful. Inside the tomb, the exposed carved rock has bands of amazing colors that make it seem out of this world. It's a little ahead of the Royal tombs but worth the walk.

The Roman part of Petra
Dec 2018 • Business
When Romans annexed Nabataeans in Petra in 106 A.D the Roman imperor sent one of his governors to rule over Petra on his behalf. The Roman Governor was Sixtus Florentinus. This was his house, which shows that Romans did not distry the city. On the contrary, Petra florishes as acRoman city in the second century A.D.

This tomb is a masterpiece of ancient Egyptian carving. It speaks volumes of their work and dedication that even today their objects are spellbinding.

Do not fall for the name!

Just like everything you see inside Petra, this facade of a face for the halls inside is just as magical and phenomenal. This place is ahead of the Royal Tombs. One of the last tombs built in Petra, this part was built probably by the Romans. Go exploring in this part of valley as you won't see many tourists here.
