pretty but underrated tourist attraction

Quirky clock made of flowers that somehow attracts a large number of tourists; surrounded by lovely views of Viña and the Pacific!

Went looking for the clock thinking it was an amazing tourist hotspot to find it to be no different to any other flower clock in the world. If you are in town and passing by it's with a look, but don't go out of your way.

It's a clock...made of flowers. Nothing else happening here folks. Stop and take a look if you are passing; but it's not worth a special trip or a detour. Having said this.., the numbers on the clock are made of plants too, which was a little bit interesting.

We stopped off for a photo stop while doing a transfer from Valparaiso to Santiago. The clock is floral and very pretty, and has Vina del Mar on it so you can remember where it was. It reminds me of the floral clock in Niagara Falls. There is no parking around here so you have to be careful. I don't... More

We visited, we left. We are. Pretty, but not life changing. It's a big deal in Chili, but reward underwhelming.

Switzerland is famous the world over for its time pieces, so it is no oddity that this magnificent looking clock on a tiered embankment made of plants and flowers, is so beautiful. Having said that though, so what?

The clock is interesting but the area where it is located also has great views of Vina del Mar. it is worth a detour and should not be misssed.

Living in Chile this is one of the most popular place in Viña for pictures, is always beautiful flowers, no parking near but great walk areas around, this was created in 1962 for the world cup that was in Chile that year, had couple of times peiple tried to dedtroyed, a must see place!!

Flowers, grass and plantings were beautiful. Unique clock. Easy walk from our hotel, but you have to plan ahead to cross streets at lights because of heavy traffic.
