Oh, that whale is one of my favourite sculptures in Jaffa. We usually park our car near then when we visit ;-)
Hi! The Tel Aviv photo is very beautiful. I know the Jonah story. Thanks for sharing.
Jaffa a wonderful mix of old and new! The whale sculpture is amazing. Thanks for hosting every week, Sue!
I'm always in awe of the art that they have in the domes (ceilings) of these churches.
Beautiful place and that church too. You have captured lovely interior details!
Exciting shots, I love the whale and the imagination it sparks. I met someone who was moving back to Tel Aviv and very excited to be doing so.
Every shot of yours is truly charming, but I have to admit that I'm so amazed at the dome of the Church of Saint Peter, it's gorgeous !Thanking you for sharing such lovely images and for hosting every week your beautiful and inspiring link-up party I'm wishing you the best of weeksXOXO Daniela at - My little old world –
What a beautiful church! Have a wonderful week
I'm curious about why they took to the story of Jonah and the Whale? IS there a story behind the statue?
Yes, Lydia. See the book of Jonah, in the Old Testament. The story is set in Jaffa. It's only four short chapters long and very easy to read.
You capture everything in a way that I feel like I'm roaming those streets. Thank you!
Interesting photos! thank you for the link up party,
What beautiful photos. You did a wonderful job. Thanks for sharing and hosting. Have a wonderful week.
I am really enjoying your Israel photos.
Such wonderful photos. I think I like the shoreline one best because can imagine walking along the tip of the water. :)Peabea@Peabea Scribbles
Beautiful photos. I like the contrast between the church, biblical reference of Jonah, and the minaret.
Beautiful design inside the church. Love the last photo. Thank you, Sue for hosting.
It's not a city we hear much about. Don't know why - perhaps in the shadow of Tel Aviv?
Jaffa is such a great city!
Beautiful interior of the church, the minaret and expansive view of Tel Aviv are all grand shots!
Cathedrals have the most beautiful architecture in the world!! Amazing!!Thank you for hosting!
