Located in the Jordan valley around 125 kilometers north of Amman, this site has been continuously occupied since Neolithic times. Pella has been a favorite of archaeologists as it is exceptionally rich in antiquities, and offers visitors the opportunity to see several artifacts of a Chalcolithic settlement from the 4th millennium BC, the remains of Bronze and Iron Ages walled cities, Byzantine churches and houses, an Early Islamic residential quarter, and a small medieval mosque.
