Landmark
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.

  • Linda to be enjoyed during the day and illuminated night has a special charm. It is a must to visit the White City

  • It is one of the places of forced step, it is not the great attraction if you don't know the story that lies behind it. With more than 300 years is the meeting place of the city, survived earthquakes and complicated times

  • Honestly I find it a great attraction, a clock on a small Tower on the side of the square, nothing fancy, you see it anyway, even if it passes unnoticed..

  • I come up in street view
  • Representative icon of Popayán

  • This building has been a symbol of the payanesa culture since its construction. 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.

  • Symbol of the beautiful city of Popayán. Important rulers and especially the citizens do not leave damaging the city and collected wastes to give a better image to visitors.
