Jericho, some 25 miles east of Jerusalem, is the world's oldest city (dating back 10,000 years) and the lowest city on earth (250m below sea level). It is here that the walls came tumbling down when Joshua and his army of Israelites blew their trumpets (Joshua 6:20). Some two miles from the town centre is Hisham's Palace, the winter residence of the Umayyad Caliph Hisham from Damascus, which was built in the 8th century and excavated in the 1930s and is a wonderful example of Islamic architecture. The Oasis Casino (which is a couple of miles before the city on the road from Jerusalem) is very popular with Israelis. A passport is needed for entry.
