Avdat , now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was founded by Nabatean traders, who made it a way station on the Incense Route across the Negev. At the visitor center a short film will introduces you to the site.

You can then tour an ancient bathhouse, a third-century guard tower, and a Nabatean shrine turned-church, whose pillars frame a magnificent Negev desertscape. A wine-press attests to Nabatean arid-land farming skills.
