Cartagena Clock Tower | Colombia

In Colombia, the four-sided Torre del Reloj gate grants access to the most charming part of Cartagena – a walled section of 18th-century mansions, leafy squares and street cafes.

The Torre del Reloj, or Clock Tower, was once the main gateway to the walled city. Construction started in 1601, and in 1631 the tower became the principal door to the city as the fortifications around the city were completed.

Port, Fortresses and Group of Monuments, Cartagena is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
