Reloj Solar, Huacalera
(1.2/5 based on 110 reviews on the web)
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.
