Ajami Neighborhood

South of the port area is Ajami (Arabic for “strangers”), one of Yafo’s most beautiful residential sections boasting stunning old homes, a refurbished park, lovely views and good local restaurants. Ajami is also home to the new Peres Peace House, a center for Arab-Israeli cooperation named after President Shimon Peres. Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas designed the sleek glass and concrete structure.
