Visit Torre del Reloj to see an icon of the city of Popayan. The tower's white walls, roof, and windows resemble those of other buildings located around the plaza. Take a close look at the clock and you'll notice that the number four is incorrectly written in Roman numerals. Consisting of 96,000 bricks, the structure was built between 1673 and 1682 in England, but didn't arrive in its current place until 1737.

  • Located near the Cathedral and Parque Caldas, this attraction is easy to find. I sat down at one of the benches of Parque Caidas and admired this attraction fro a minute or so! 
  • La Torre del Reloj is the symbol of the White colonial city of Popayan. Is located in the large square next to the Cathedral, and it is really very nice sitting on the benches and enjoy the cool of the day and night, as the Tower's enchantment, silent, watching us. It's simple and beautiful and is a source of great pride for all inhabitants of Popayan.

Its overall structure is damage during the earthquake of the 83' but followed on foot, so it was given a refurbishment to its structure; at the base of the building there is a plaque dedicated to the people who lived the tragedy. The clock does not work, was paralyzed during the earthquake.
