Sometimes written Quedumim Square, this is the approach to all Jaffa Attractions – St. Peter’s Church, the Jaffa Visitors’ Center, the Zodiac Fountain and Park Hapisga.
The Zodiac Fountain
The fountain was created by the sculptors Varda Ghivoly and Ilan Gelber in 2011. It is located in Kedumim Square. You can see the chalkstone sculptures of the twelve zodiacs. Tour guides tell an old legend about a magical wishing well located in this very place.
Jaffa Visitors Center
Family friendly and one of the most popular Jaffa Attractions
The Slope Park
The Slope Park (Park Hamidron) is the oldest park in Jaffa. The park is located entirely on the structures and foundations of Arab homes destroyed by the British Mandate government. The area of the park is about an acre and a half. The park occupies the area between the Charles Clore Park, Shlomo Lahat Promenade and the Second Aliyah Pier.
Peak Park (Park Hapisga)
You can take some wonderful panorama shots from this park of the Mediterranean beach of Tel Aviv-Yafo.
The Wishing Bridge
Another tour guide story says that anyone who stands on the bridge, grasps the relief of their astrological sign and gazes at the sea –will have his wish come true! Unfortunately the bridge is currently closed for repairs. There is no time estimate for the repairs. This is the Middle East here.
The Gate of Faith
The statue consists of two pillars and one lintel, each about 12 feet in length. Two Patriarchs are carved into the pillars, Abraham’s [Genesis 22] and Jacob [Genesis 28]. The lintel depicts the capture of Jericho [Joshua 6].
The lintels of this gate, bear the titles of Ramses II, unearthed in Jaffa.
