The entrance to the walled city
Dec 2020
“La Torre del Reloj” is the entrance to the walled city and it is an emblematic point of reference in Cartagena, right outside in the evening gathers lots of people to eat street food or just hanging out with their families.

Right inside passing “La torre del reloj” there is a hallway where they sell traditional sweets, it is called “el corredor del los dulces”.

Outside “la Torre del reloj”starts the oldest neighborhood in Cartagena outside the walled city called Getsemani.

A picture here is a must if you go to Barranquilla!

The place to be
Nov 2020 • Solo
Even in a pandemic, this large outdoor square sings with loud music and laughter. Everyone was wearing a mask unless sitting at distances tables and drinking beer. This is the heartbeat of Cartagena’s nightlife.

You must see and appreciate this iconic historical tower!
Nov 2020
As a Trip Advisor DESTINATION EXPERT for Colombia with 30 years of visits and now living 4 years in Medellin and exploring just about every city large and small - it is my pleasure to provide this reasoned and accurate review of the Torre del Reloj.

You must see and appreciate this iconic historical tower! You can't miss it and you will end up walking by it more times than you can count especially so if your staying at a hotel in the walled city.

At night the lighting of the tower makes it almost magical and so don't be distracted by the night time going-on's within the plaza below with the ladies and men interacting, rather just enjoy it for what it is.

As I just arrived on my drive up from Medellin to start my road trip on the coast the clock tower is a welcoming site after my 13 hour drive from Medellin.

I have been a number of times to Cartagena and will return of course always being welcomed by the Torre del Reloj!

Major Cartegena Landmark
Jun 2019
This is the historic main gate of the fortress city of Cartegena. It look out to the docks area and further to the Getsemani Neighborhood.
The clock was added in the 1800s.
You will pass by the site many, many times.
A classic stucture!

Focal point in Cartegena
Mar 2020 • Couples
This is an interesting refuge from the constant road traffic in this area. Girls practicing their dance steps, men talking in small groups, the occasional napper, pigeons and squirrels prancing about and tourists feeling their way make this a place to sit and contemplate the meaning of life. Around the perimeter book sellers offer a large collection of books to read.
