The Old Town of Jaffa is situated on the south side of Tel Aviv, on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, typical of Tel Aviv landmarks. The wood from the Bible that was built to build the Jewish temple in Jerusalem was shipped from here. Looking south at the seaside in Tel Aviv, there are hills surrounded by houses, and there is a bell tower on the top of the hill, which is the old town of Jaffa. The stone houses and alleys in the city have now become picturesque artists and tourist centers.

The Old Town of Jaffa on the Mediterranean Sea is an ancient city with a history of more than 4,000 years and one of the earliest port trade cities in the world. This ancient millennium city has been mentioned many times in the Bible. For thousands of years, the Romans, Greeks, Crusaders, Turks, Arabs and other countries have invaded the army. The Old City of Jaffa has also staged a history of alternating ups and downs. Nowadays, the old town, which has experienced thousands of years of wind and rain, is surrounded by trees, trees and windows. Every building and every corner is telling the past...
"Jaffa" is Hebrew The homonym of the word "beautiful", because the scenery here is excellent and picturesque, it still maintains the simple appearance of the millennium. Most of the streets and towns of the ancient city are composed of stone houses. They are built according to the ups and downs of the terrain. They are full of vicissitudes of history and are particularly charming in the blue Mediterranean embrace.
Old Jaffa is situated in the south of Tel Aviv and contrasts with the Mediterranean in a modern setting. The wood that records the establishment of Judaism Christmas is landed here.
Outside the ancient city is a street filled with various shops and restaurants. During the day, I only felt that the shop was awkward. In the ancient city, under the shelter of the ancient city walls, peace and quiet make people have the power to find their heart. The central square of the Old Town has 12 constellations of fountains, churches and visitor centres, and several cafs overlooking the Mediterranean. If there is plenty of time, I will order a cup of coffee and the sea to "ear the ear" for a whole day. The modern beach, from the corner of the ancient city of Jaffa, has a long-lasting meaning.
I came to Israel and impressed Jaffa. Jaffa is one of the oldest port cities in the world. It is 4,000 years old now. It is amazing! This port city has been very prosperous since ancient times. The first documentary was in the 15th century BC, when the ancient Egyptian pharaoh Tu Tessis III ruled, and later in the Old Testament and the New Testament. Mentioned.
There are not many tourists in the morning, clean and quiet. The place is not big, you can go shopping in half a day, but it is more suitable for taking a leisurely walk. Look at the old streets and the artists' studios. In Jaffa there is a street named after the twelve constellations. If you have time, you can look around. In fact, the twelve streets are distributed in two blocks, and the arrangement is very regular. It is not difficult to find. It is recommended to take a map to the visitor center first. The map starts with MAZEL and is the constellation street.
Standing at the highest point overlooking the blue Mediterranean Sea, the sea lies in the Andromeda rock, from Greek mythology.
Israel - the oldest city in the world, Jaffa
Israel What is your favorite place? If someone asks me this way, I think I will really hesitate.
wrote a lot of content, only to find that half did not write.
But when I wrote to the ancient city of Jaffa, I really like it. I can't say that I don't like Jerusalem, but maybe I am surprised by Tel Aviv and Jaffa.
Tel Aviv is really fashionable, avant-garde, but there is also an ancient city of Jaffa in him. The ancient city of Jaffa is one of the oldest cities in the world. It was inhabited by humans in 5,000 BC. The wood in the Bible that was written to build the Jewish temple in Jerusalem was also transported from the Jaffa port, so some people say that Jaffa is the oldest port city in the world.
Today's Jaffa Old Town is also an artist's paradise, and the old houses in the city have been converted into art creative neighborhoods, with many studios and art galleries.
However, the real charm of the old city lies in such a mess. Jaffa's favorite flea market is scattered in the criss-crossing streets south of the clock tower. There are many boutiques, relaxed cafes, trendy bars and colorful street stalls selling vintage clothing and furniture, wenwan, and even See antiques.
A major feature of the ancient city of Jaffa is that the streets and house numbers are represented by constellations. It is very interesting to walk down the street to find your own constellation. In addition, there are a wishing bridge and a twelve-constellation matrix engraved with twelve constellations in the old town.
