The nomadic Nabateans made Mamshit, a station along on the Incense Route from Arabia to market via the Mediterranean.

Among the highlights at Mamshit, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the wealthy house, a three-story guard tower with a fabulous view of the desert and two churches with mosaics.

You'll also see a typical Nabatean-style dwelling, including a stable for 16 horses.

The market street is recreated on some holidays.

There is an overnight campground at the parks Nabatean Khan (caravansary).
