One of the stories in the Bible was about Jonah – He didn’t want to go to Nineveh and tried to go in the opposite direction by sailing west. Jonah was washed overboard and swallowed by a big fish.
In Joppa, which is where Jonah would have left to head west, is a fountain in the shape of a big fish!!!
