    AlUla, The World’s Masterpiece, is one of the most significant regions in the Arabian Peninsula and home to the ancient city of Hegra, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

    Hegra was built by the Nabataeans over two thousand years ago where philosophies and political discourse from the time are carved into the rock.

    A land rich in historical, geological and geographical significance, this ancient city, once at the crossroads of The Silk Road and The Incense Route, has only recently been re-discovered by the world.

    Not only is AlUla a living museum but also it plays host to events at the modern-day Maraya: the largest mirrored building in the world and more such as large-scale outdoor art exhibitions.
