Old Jaffa
Hotel Gilgal is just 20 minutes away from old Jaffa, which is the oldest part of Tel Aviv-Jaffa, an ancient port city famous for its association with the biblical stories of Jonah, Solomon, and Peter. It is rich with history and culture and is a ‘must visit’ site for all. The markets in Jaffa are some of the oldest and most colorful markets.
 
Saturdays Artists fare
A special artist’s fest takes place in the Jaffa port itself. The charming stone streets leading to the port conceal art galleries and other unique stores. Jaffa at night has lovely coffee houses with a truly unique ambiance set in small allies behind the market area.

The owners of the hotel can also connect you to the famous Protestant Cemetery in Jaffa. An old cemetery from the 19th century where the famous Physician Thomas Hodgkin is buried.
