From the top of Mount Nebo (about 800 meters) you can see the Jordan Valley and on days when the visibility is particularly good, you can see Jericho and Jerusalem in the distance. That is why God brought Moses there at the end of his life.

 

After leaving Egypt and many adventures explained in detail in the bible, Moses arrived on Mount Nebo with a splendid view of the Jordan Valley.

As Moses had done some nonsense the details of which are recorded in the sacred book, God told him that he could look at the Promised Land with his eyes ... but not enter it.

Moses therefore died at the age of 120 at the top of Mount Nebo. No guarantee that the place where Moses died is actually here, but it is here that a basilica dedicated to Moses was built around the 5th century AD and this basilica (recently restored) contains magnificent mosaics.

 

 

about the place, Mount Nebo:

According to the Bible (Deuteronomy), Moses, then 120 years old, ascended Mount Nebo located in the west of present-day Jordan. It was there that God brought him to show him the Promised Land, the land of Canaan. However, since Moses disobeyed God when he came out of Egypt, God told him that he would not tread on the promised land. And Moses died on the hill Nebo.

Archelogic excavations carried out at the beginning of the 20th century brought to light the remains of a Byzantine church and a monastery dating from the 5th century AD. These buildings contained magnificent mosaics.

The basilica was completely renovated at the start of the 21st century.
