An important structure for the city but it's not really memorialized like the clock tower. People walk right by it. a structure in a pit with no super good information. The whole park is very cute and well done just minutes from everything else. Great views for picture taking of the tel aviv skyline from the upper gate. Great place... More

About 200 m from center of Old Jaffa, you can find this park with an historical gate. An area visited by many tourists.

It's pretty nice. There isn't a lot of back ground to it but it's a good moment inside a great park.

This site sees to be overlooked by almost all the tour groups despite the fact they walk so close to it. This is a great pity since it is the impost historical place in the whole era, with a gate dating back to the time of Ramses II. The site is small, but worth visiting, and the view of Tel... More

This is the place to appreciate what an immense history lies behind Old Jaffa. It is just one artifact within it's archeological context, but it's cultural meaning is huge. Very appropriate to pay some respect on your way to an awesome lookout point on a hill beside it, where you get a breathtaking view of TA!

Old Jaffa has archealogical treasures. This is a monument to the Great Ramses II. From the hill one sees old Jaffa New Tel Aviv and for miles north along the shore.....
