Travel to Israel: Jaffa: Photo 2

world pictures Israel: Jaffa

Old Jaffa, from a modern breakwater. The city was compact, on a small hill rising from the coastal plain. The modern city of Jaffa spreads out on the far side of the hill. After 1948, the old city was deserted until transformed into an artist's colony. It's a common transformation in Israel, where formerly Palestinian buildings offer architectural character hard to find in resolutely modern Israeli designs.
