Old Jaffa is shrouded in many different legends and legends. For example, there is a legend that in place of Jaffa created his ark Noah. In the myths of the ancient Greeks it was said that Andromeda was chained to a rock somewhere near the Jaffa port - it was here that the hero Perseus saved the beauty. From ancient Jaffa, the biblical prophet Jonah set off on his journey. Lebanese cedar was brought to Jaffa for the construction of the First Jerusalem Temple. In old Jaffa, the apostle Peter resurrected the righteous Tabitha. The significance of Jaffa in the ancient era and in the Middle Ages was very great - precious incense and spices were transported from the south of the Arabian Peninsula to the ancient Jaffa port; then the cargo was transferred to the ships and brought to the West, to Europe.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Jaffa - from the promenade to the promenade

This unhurried walk from the embankment through the old city to another part of the embankment will allow you to fully understand and feel the old part of the city of Jaffa. Walking along the promenade from the famous ledge resembling the bow of a ship to the customs building, we learn the history of an important port city, and, having understood from the port along the stairs to its narrow streets, we plunge into the kingdom of the east. But not for long will we be accompanied by a sense of fairy tales of a thousand and one nights. The modern history of Jaffa will slightly open the veil on his creative and pictorial side. These are galleries, monuments, sculptures, a constant floating orange and zodiac signs with a wish bridge. We conclude our walk by going down along the house of Simon Tanner to the English part of the port to its restaurants, shops and the famous scales, which served the English customs faithfully in a difficult fight against smugglers. By the way, from the roof of the house of the tanner Simon almost two thousand years ago, Christianity began its journey to Rome. Translated with Google Translate
