Reloj Solar, Huacalera

A sharp stone edifice along the Tropic of Capricorn, Reloj Solar marks the southernmost point where the sun passes directly overhead. Snap some pictures of the locally revered sundial and see if you can tell the time by it. Note, however, that trip to see the sundial alone--while interesting and good for a photo--may not warrant the time it takes to get there. Consider combining your visit with other nearby attractions, including a cathedral.

  • The place surrounds us in a mixture of imagination and adventure. On the one hand trying to understand that an imaginary line (such as the Equator) exists which determines climates that occur in this part of the southern hemisphere. From this point (facing it) we understand that to the North (on your right hand side) the climate is favourable for the cultivation of many products; While to the South stands the cold climate that the landscape is complemented by the imposing snow-capped mountains.

  • Passing by Huacalera you discover this beautiful sundial that highlights the presence of the imaginary line of the Tropic of Capricorn. Fotaza!
