|This small and active church has a lot to offer. Both the interior and exterior are pleasantly decorated and there is a vault-come-museum which houses limited but well presented mosaic replicas and information on John the Baptist . It is also possible to climb the bell tower for perhaps the best views of Madaba! – Sarah|

|If there is a service (or communion practice) on when you visit, it still possible to see the vaults by skimming past the pews to the right of the entrance and heading down the stairs.|
|Even if you are not interested in the history of the site, the bell tower really does offer good views of Madaba.|
|This isn’t an extensive attraction, nor does it get the crowds of St George’s (Madaba Mosaic Map), so you probably don’t need more than an hour to see everything, should you be worried about time.|
