Popayán Things to Do: 47 reviews and 143 photos
The Tower of Reloj has an interesting history. Built in the late 1600s to help shore up the foundation of the Cathedral, the bell-tower unlike most other structures in town, strong enough to withstand the earthquake of 1736. This led the city to install a special clock brought in from London which was unfortunately seriously affected by the 1983 earthquake and needed to be sent back to London for repair.
The bell-tower is well lit at night for some atmospheric photos. Otherwise, there are lots of angles to shoot it from so mornings and afternoons are good.
Directions: Right on Parque Caldas, next to the Cathedral.
