Jaffa

Jaffa is smothered in the stifling heat of the Mediterranean sun, as it has been for thousands of years. The area is said to have been inhabited for 10 000 years, and you really can feel the rich history of the region in the town’s narrow alleys.

It feels somehow completely detached of time itself, standing by the sea like an ageless fortress of stone. It’s not just a museum, though – once you look close, you can see that the ancient town is still very much alive.
