In the center of the hill of Old Jaffa you will find a large open square. Underneath the surface are some archaeological excavations which yielded findings from the ancient Egyptian, Philistine and Hasmonean periods. A figure dressed like a Napoleonin soldier points the way to the Visitor Center in the square (Napoleon was one of Jaffa's many conquerors).

In the Kedumim Square you will also notice a nice modern fountain, representing the zodiac signs. From there a maze of narrow lanes lead to Jaffa's art galleries and finally to the port.

Directions: In the center of Old Jaffa.
