Monumento Torre del Reloj is a majestic bell tower located within the Old Town of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. The clock tower stands tall in the Plaza de la Aduana and serves as a landmark for the old port area of the city. The tower was built in the late 18th century and features a very Baroque style of architecture with a white and blue color palate. The Torre is also home to the oldest clock in South America; the clock first rang in 1806 and continues to tell the time today. Visitors can admire the detailed ornamentation both on the exterior, with its curves and reliefs, and on the interior. It is a great stop for anyone looking to explore the historic monuments of Cartagena.
