Torre del Reloj, Popayan

4.6
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.

  • Popayan! Amazing city. People, the weather, the environment, everything so organized
  • Colonial building with a very interesting fact. The one which you can see at a glance. "The clock has no number 4 or IV" put to as seen in this images expressed in Roman numerals. Unfortunately in the quality of image that allows you to display the application does not allow zoom on it to verify the lack of number.
