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.

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.
