Jaffa, Israel

Jaffa, Israel

Jaffa is a port city in the Tel-Aviv municipality. It is known for its biblical stories. In 636 it was conquered by the Arabs, but in 1100 it was captured after the First Crusade by the Christians. Throughout the rest of the Crusades, the city constantly changed rulers, as the Crusaders and Arabs alternated their power. Thanks to Osnat.
