About the Rock Which the Beautiful Andromeda is Associated WithFrom where you stand, please look at the sea, heading northwest. A few hundred meters from the beach, you can see in the sea a small group of rocks, known as Andromeda Rock.
Here, according to legend, Andromeda was tied to the rocks, as a sacrifice of the people of Jaffa, to appease the sea monster, so that the monster could devour her. And here came the miracle in which the hero Perseus saved Andromeda, a moment before the monster rose from the sea to devour her. Perseus took Andromeda on his flying horse and they married and lived happily ever since.
Who was Andromeda?Andromeda was the daughter of the beautiful Cassiopeia, queen of Euphoria, Jaffa. But Cassiopeia was also quite arrogant and she boasted of her beauty and even said she was prettier than the sea... The gossip quickly reached Poseidon, God of the sea, and he sent in revenge a horrible monster to punish the people of Yupia, Jaffa.
The King and Queen of Euphoria were appalled by the trouble and learned that the only way to calm and get rid of the monster's punishment was to sacrifice their own daughter Andromeda. They tied her to a rock in the sea, not far from the beach and waited.
But then, as in fairy tales, the hero Perseus arrived. Although without a horse, horses do not swim so well, Perseus fell in love with Andromeda immediately. He stalked the monster and turned it, as he sometimes did, to stone. Then he took Andromeda riding the flying horse Pegasus and married her and since then they live happily ever after ...
If you walk once in the port of Jaffa, you can see the rock that tradition says is "Andromeda Rock" in the sea, not far from shore.
