Nice tower as a landmark ok. Opening hours not always clear. Visit best during walk around centre. Good to do in morning hours.

Worth the climb up the steep cliff side road as there are several churches & a museum to see nearby too. We looked in one door & found ourselves in a music conservatory - wish we could have visited more of the inside .There are some interesting Moorish ruins in the dig just outside the Clock Tower . Lovely view... More

They should really... More

Located in the old city, the clock tower has no real special attractions located in it or about it. When coming up from the beach you can see the tower and building from the upper ledge of the cliff. Ok for a walk by while navigating the winding streets but nothing special

It is interesting to notice that the ironwork on top of the tower is a reminder of those which can be found in Provence, in southern France. The area around is really nice... More

View amazing but nothing else. Can have the same view from many other places in Lisbon, remember to use your bus ticket here for entrance and do not pay additionally.

Standing proud above the old town of Albufeira is the clock tower (Torre do Relógio) a major landmark in Albufeira which was part of one of the original castle towers destroyed in the 1755 earthquake along with most of the town.

The Old Clock Tower still chimes today and it is lovely to hear. You can see it standing it its glory above all the other buildings in the Old Town and hear it from just about all over the town. If you have a second, go and check it out. It is lovely to look at too!

Nice ambiance, fine old surroundings, gorgeous views and lots of tourists. Bring a cap, as the sun is pretty bright in Sept.
