A twelve-meter wristwatch

Clock Tower 5.JPG

Jaffa's clock tower is a landmark. It is located in the middle of Jefet street where it has measured minutes since 1903. At that time Jaffa was a hoppin' spot and Tel Aviv was little more than a sandy strip.

Civic contributions by both Arabs and Jews made the construction of the clock possible. 

Today this neighborhood of old Yafo (Jaffa) sees many tourists, both foreign and local. It is a good place to find a lunch, an ATM, or to browse the nearby flea market. 

The road pictured here runs to the mound of the ancient city.
