Clock Square

The traditional starting point for tours of Yafo, this square is home to one of the area’s most visited sites—the Clock Tower built in 1906 by Turkish Sultan Abed-el-Hamid II. The square also houses the former governor’s house (Seraya) and a jailhouse used by the Turks and British (called the Kishle). The legendary Abulafia bakery is just steps away, on Yefet Street.
