Modern Jaffa is part of the city of Tel-Aviv.

Old Jaffa used to be an ancient port/harbor, connected to Biblical times as well as to the Prophet Jonah.


The city had known many conquerors, Medieval, Ottoman, Modern, Christian, Muslim or Jewish.

Relics have endured throughout time in its stones, buildings and drawings.

Modern Jaffa has a heterogeneous population of 47,000 residents: Jews, Christians, and Muslims.
It is a city of three religions; its architecture offers Mosques, Churches and synagogues.


These days, Jaffa is blended with artists of many kinds, music and theaters and many fine restaurants to dine at.

Here are some of Jaffa’s photos, to offer you a glimpse of its variety and beauty.
