We thought the design was neat, though we couldn't get close to it due to the fence being locked from the covid restrictions.

Great for a stop and for taking cool pictures. I enjoyed doing just that. This should be a stop on your stroll on Guayaquil’s boardwalk.

This beautiful Moorish style clock tower gives you the hour and a good spot to take a photo or two. Located on the Malecon just across from the main city building and the Governor's building.

On the Malecon, near Calle 10 de Agosto, you will find an attractive Moorish clock tower. Built in the early 1930s, the tower is in the style brought first to Spain by Moorish conquerors in the VII Century and then by Spanish “conquistodores” to the New World. Alas, the actual design may owe more to Guayaquil’s international outlook than to homage to its colonial rulers. Interestingly, it may also pay homage to waves of immigrants who left the remnants of the Turkish Empire seeking greater opportunities in Latin America. Many settled coastal cities like Guayaquil and contributed great entrepreneurial and commercial dynamism.

It was Monday and the interior was closed but having spent months seeing Moorish edifices in Spain and Turkey it was a lovely surprise to come upon this clock tower. The tile work is beautiful as well as the cut of the door and windows. The adornment of those features seemed an exquisite example of the style.

Nice photo op is you need something of interest to photograph. I'm not sure if you can go inside but I didn't see anyone doing so during my visit.

A walk along the Malecon on just keeps on giving. The Torre Morisca is a Moorish Clock tower built in the 1930’s to house the first public clock, purchased from Europe in 1842, original located a top of the Colonial City Hall.
