Tour in Jaffa
A historical-artistic-identity journey that goes through 5,000 years, five neighborhoods, five languages and countless sources of inspiration.
The tour combines the history of the city of Jaffa in its 5,000 years of existence with a discussion of the conflictual issues of the city in recent decades through textual and musical works performed on the site.
Route of the tour:
We leave the "Beitza" area - Bloomfield Stadium and Jerusalem Boulevard, and climb from the flea market towards the Jerusalem Gate and the Mosque of the Mahmudiyah. We continue to the Clock Square between the Kishle (the detention center) and the Saraya al-Jadida (municipality building) from the Ottoman period. We proceed along the route of the Crusader city wall towards the port. We stop at the Armenian monastery and the Sea Mosque and from there we ascend through the alleys of the Kasbah to Kedumim Square, a scar from Operation Anchor during the British Mandate - and return to the flea market.
Two facilitators, the tour takes about two hours.
