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.

  • This clock tower, emblematic of the small town is amazing. It was pi {(e) after the earthquake of 1983 and the clock marks the hour of the same. It is in the main square and very well preserved.
