Pella (Taqabat Fahl)

Sitting on a plateau above the Jordan Valley, Pella village seems like a sleepy backwater, yet this area has marked the march of civilisations and human presence as far back as the Stone Age. Archaeological digs have revealed Neolithic houses built around 6,000 BCE, massive city walls from 3,200 BCE and a Greek city. But it was the Romans who left a lasting mark with a theatre, fountain-house and baths.
