A Walk Through Old Jaffa

A Walk Through Old Jaffa

Old Jaffa Port lies to the south of Tel Aviv in Israel and is the historical section of the city, with a history spanning back for 4000 years. The Old City has partly been renovated and restored to become a tourist attraction and is a great place to wander through and learn some of the history of the city.

In the Bible, Jaffa is referred to as Joppa and is the place where the cedars of Lebanon were brought in for the building of the first and second temples in Jerusalem.
