נמל יפו העתיקה | The old port, Jaffa, Israel

Jaffa port at the old city of Jaffa adjacent to Tel Aviv city, is an ancient one, mentioned in the bible and its history is spanning over 3000 years.


Many legends are related to Jaffa from the story of Jonah and the whale, Greek legends of the beautiful Andromeda, and its foundation by Japhet, the son of Noah, captain of one of the most famous arks in history. Some 3000 years ago Jaffa served Egyptian and Phoenician sailors for construction of King Solomon’s Temple, for trade of cedars from Lebanon and as a port city for pilgrims heading to Jerusalem.
