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 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.

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.....
