Nice meeting point near the beach. Something old in the middle of the modern city. Beautiful lights in the evening.

The clock tower is located in the median on the boulevard leading into the heart of Jaffa's flea market and restaurant area. It is used by many groups as an easily found landmark. Hope this helps.

Just a clock tower in the middle of the street. What you get is what you see in photographs. You'll pass by it on the way to Old Jaffa anyway.

This square , on the old way from Jaffa to Nablus , is named after the clock tower in the middle . The tower was built in 1906 to commemorate the 25th year in power of the Ottoman Sultan Abed Alhamid the second . Many clock towers were then built in the Ottoman Empire . Around this square were the old municipality of Jaffa , the Ottoman police station and the big Almahmudia mosque.
A third floor was added to the tower in 1911 . Today shops , restaurants and the luxurious Setay hotel are around the square.

The tour starts right here at 11am, we went on a Friday. Free is free, but wear good shoes and bring water. We enjoyed the tour and then explored this ancient port city ourselves

For an area of the city that underwhelmed me, the Clock Tower is one of the more appealing sights. Though it's only worth a look and walk-by.

It's in the middle of a busy active street and it's iconic because that's what it is. I'm not sure if it still tells the time. There are locked doors- one cannot go inside. Someone was taking photographs of it when we passed by it. It's near the Jaffa beach, so one can use it as a great and super meeting point when going to do the Tashlich ritual of casting the bread into the sea for the fish to eat- that's what we did.

Really, you are in the middle of the modern city of Tel Aviv, and from one block to the next, find yourself back in time, really beautiful, clean and nice!!

Yes the place is great, the people are great to experience, but this classic monument to time is a great meeting spot and a landmark that you likely will reference.

It's and integral part of old Jaffa. The building is also very aesthetic. Read about it's history. The nearby shawarma places are highly recommended.
