    The Sagittarius Street

    Deep inside of the Old Jaffa hide narrow streets, each named after a Zodiak sign. So, walk around and try to find yours, I found mine ;-)

    St. peter cathedral is a very beautiful church located in old Jaffa in Kedumim square.

    The old city of Yafo (or Jaffa) is a great place to hang around no matter what season, time of the day or night. Shopping, dinning, clubbing and basically, sightseeing is just wonderful here.

    Old Jaffa (Yaffo) - narrow street and porch,Israel

    No room, no room, that must be what every person living in Yaffo shouts every day, here you can see a "porch", perched above the heads of those passing on the narrow, winding street below.
