Really old clock on the main street

The tower is on the main street pretty close to Plaza Sotomayor. As it is situated in middle of buildings need to keep looking up to locate it.

Nice old tower, but not a place to visit especially. When you look up when you wanna go up with the ascensor (that's fun btw!), you'll see an old tower with a kind of egg on top. Nothing special actually (maybe i missed the history?)

Before we came to this financial district, we walked by Avenida Brazil , Plaza Victoria, Plaza Sotomayor, and Paso 21 de Mayo. Everyone was so relaxed and laid back. But when we came to the Turri clock Tower area. I noticed everybody’s pace is faster. We even had to walk faster to keep up. In Valparaíso’s heyday the oldest Spanish... More

The best view of the clock is probably from Paseo Gervasoni. It tops the narrow end of a building between Cochrane and Prat Roads. It has an odd bulbous thing on top otherwise fairly ordinary.

The tower is one of the iconic landmarks in Valparaiso. However, I don't find it particularly interesting. There are many more interesting places to see and visit in the city...

The Turri Clock Tower is a must in Valparaiso. You will have one of the best views of the port, and there are many nice cafes and shops in the sorrounding area.
