Travel Guide
Amman, the capital of the reign of Jordan, is one of the oldest cities in the world. Built over seven hills, it is also known as the “White City” because of the color palette of its buildings. Most of the constructions are on beige, white and ocher tones, because of the  materials used, native from the region. In recent years, Amman has grown a lot, mostly because of its important role in the industry and commerce.... This makes modernity and tradition go hand in hand, these united by the coexistence of the Muslims (majority of the population) and the Christians. Being a city with many contrasts, it promises every type of tourism: The modern part has new constructions, locals, residences and shopping malls, and the historical and more traditional part is located around the Souk (Or Souq), an open-aired Marketplace. This capital of Jordan is a city with constant movement. It has been expanding its extension along the way, and this makes its overall structure a little bit labyrinth-like, mostly in the downtown area. It has buildings from the Roman ages, and its physiognomy it very diverse thanks to the mark it has left on many civilizations that have set foot on its territory. The cultural diversity makes the Jordanians be very welcoming and to respond to an authentic mix of cultures, traditions and religions.
