Umm Qais (the modern Gadara), Jordan, is said to be the site of the famous miracle of the Gadarene swine, where Jesus removed demons from two men and transferred them to a herd of pigs.

Umm Qais was a cultural centre, home to poets and philosophers. Examine the Graeco-Roman columns and amphitheatres, and enjoy the surrounding lush landscape with views of the Jordan Valley and Sea of Galilee.

The nearby Hot Springs of Al Himma, treasured by the Romans, still offers bathing facilities for visitors to relax.
