Most Jordanians enjoy sweet things and all towns have several popular patisseries. Baklawa is a favourite choice and is made with paper thin layers of filo pastry filled with chopped almond or pistachio nuts and honey.

The first literary reference to the city of Pella is from the 19th century BC when it is mentioned in Egyptian texts as Pihilum, or Pehel. It was a flourishing trade centre, with links with Syria and Cyprus as well as Egypt.

Like many of Jordan's ancient cities and monuments, the cities of Umm Qays and Pella were destroyed during the terrible earthquake of 747 AD.
