Suzanne Dellal Centre

Arts Centre in South City Centre

The first school built outside the city walls of Jaffa, this 1892 building set in leafy surrounds was converted into a cultural centre between 1984 and 1989, triggering the gentrification of the formerly dishevelled Neve Tzedek neighbourhood. A popular venue for festivals and cultural events, it has a focus on dance and is home to the internationally recognised Batsheva troupe. Even if you've not got tickets to a performance, it's worth visiting just to stroll around its idyllic courtyard.
