Many legends are related to Jaffa from the story of Jonah and the whale, Greek legends of the beautiful Andromeda, and its foundation by Japhet, the son of Noah, captain of one of the most famous arks in history.
Jaffa has always served as a port city for pilgrims heading to Jerusalem and the old port of Jaffa claims to be the oldest port in the world, mentioned several times in the bible and its history is spanning over 3000 years.
Andromeda rock is located at the entrance to the old and famous Jaffa port. Through the history, Jaffa was always a very desired city and knew conquerors and rulers from all over the world. All realized the military importance of the area and each conquered it in order to gain control and approach to the Holy Land of Israel.
According to the Greek mythology, Andromeda rock is the place to which beautiful Andromeda, the daughter of queen Cassiopeia, was chained.
Andromeda was chained to the a rock at the sea’s edge and left there to helplessly await her fate by the hands of the sea monsters. The hero Perseus had arrived in time, saved Andromeda, and ultimately became her husband.
