Turri Clock Tower, Valparaiso

2.8
Stop and admire Turri Clock Tower, a clock tower and Valparaiso landmark. Built in 1924, the tower is also known as the Agustin Edwards Tower, named after the famous newspaper publisher, though locals know the tower as "Turri", after a store that used to operate from the building. London's Big Ben inspired the cross shaped building. Wait to hear it chime every 25 minutes and take some photographs of the iconic Valparaiso symbol.

  • Valparaiso is one of the oldest cities in Chile, and in addition to its particular geography, has many attractive places that have made it an attractive jewel to be portrayed by artists, professionals and fans, being considered heritage of the Humanity. One of its veteran buildings is popularly known as "Clock Turri". The building is located at the intersection of Prat, Cochrane and Esmeralda streets opposite the Concepción funicular, and built in 1923. It is a good region to walk and admire the typical architecture of the financial center of Valparaiso. Some neighboring buildings of the Turri clock, in the commercial district of the port city, are those who harbor the Bolsa de Valores, El Mercurio, Hotel Dimmier, former Central Bank and former Royal Hotel. There is a curiosity about the clock, and not everyone noticed, but there is an urban legend that explains why the number 4 romano is written wrong way where the constructor that created it was instructed kill by the King for this error and why all watches from Valparai so they are still the same error.

  • The ride is worth a lot to shame, despite the movement: architecture, beautiful buildings. There's plenty to see around. Sunny afternoon makes the outlines of the buildings even more beautiful.
