Jaffa was a port city for around a thousand years, and there is evidence of human settlements since the Bronze Age. Today, it has been revived as a popular tourist destination. The south of the clock tower is the home to many flea markets, locally known as the pishpeshuk. There are many trendy boutiques, storefronts, and roadside stalls.
