I just don´t understand why the fuss. Its just a simple flower clock, nothing spectacular, not grand not anything! and you cannot really stop for long there, cause the police do not allow parking. so you go, take your picture, buy some souvenir, and your gone. Not worth it at all!

It's a pretty flower clock, very tourist, but still worth a visit!! Also, it's just across the beach (Caleta Abarca) and the Sheraton. If you are doing a walk to explore Viña del Mar, this is a great place to start. Behind it it's Cerro Castillo. There are stairs that will lead you to a great view of Valparaiso!

Just a beautiful setting at a major intersection. Beautiful plantings and the clock is unique since it is made from beautiful flowers

Kind of a cliche. Drop by and see it if it is on you way, but do not spend and great time or effort to get there.

I'd recommend not bothering even getting out of the car for this. Drive by and take a picture if you feel the need. If you do not happen to be in this area then skip the Flower Clock. Boring!

Is it really supposed to be an attraction? It's a clock! very poor during my visit (it was winter, maybe the flowers were impacted by cold weather)

This is a place where you must spend no more than 15 minutes taking pictures, lots of tourists lining up for the pics and nice thing to do, very clean and relaxing surroundings and about 30 meters from this clock, there's a pay phone from the 1970's also to take pictures at., recommeneded.

The Flower Clock is in my opinion mostly a tourist attraction for the more senior citizens visiting beautiful Vina del Mar. Stop by if the Clock is en route, but I wouldn't put in the extra effort to see the Flower Clock.
