Torre del Reloj, Popayan

4.5
#2 of 17 in Things to do in Popayan
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.

    Caldas Park is a must-see for anyone who will know to Popayan. It is located in one of the corners of the Park and is one of the emblematic elements of the city.

    It is a very nice, organized place, it is easy to make an imaginary journey through time. All is homogeneous and very well preserved. Ideal for photos, visit museums, culture, walking, eating, super recommended the Pipian empanadas with their chili peanuts like the tamales Pipian and the shampoos. Very friendly people. Recommended for day and night.
