The clock tower you see here today was actually a later 19th century addition. The main historical relevance of this places is as the historical primary entrance gate to the Old Town. Inside the entrance walls used to be an armory and and a chapel. Note the Tuscan style portico. The square surrounding the tower has lots of shops and is a great place for people watching. Right under the clocktower entrance you’ll find a bunch of vendors selling souvenirs and miscellaneous items. There’s not much else to do here so take your pictures and head into the city!
- By car or take a taxi from outside Old Town.
- Walk to here from inside Old Town.

There is so much to see, buy and do here. The clock tower serves as an entrance to La Plaza Aduana and from there many other interesting places. Within it's walls exists a myriad of all things Colombian as well as all things Cartagena. Great place to visit.
While really pretty, the square is packed with solicitors of all sorts. They can persist even if you ignore them, and eventually, they'll start offering 'the good stuff' or 'Colombia's finest' if that's your thing. There are a lot of great clubs and places to eat. So if you want to have fun, it's best to know where you're going ahead of time, if you don't want to get accosted. There are better places in the city for a nice stroll.
Interesting place for a walking tour of Cartegenia, Columbia. Worth the time.
Uno de los lugares mas emblematicos de Cartagena, la clasica foto tiene que ser aqui. Es una entrada como de película a la Ciudad Amurallada. Muchas cosas que ver por la zona y con full chance de interactuar con los locales. Super buen lugar
Lovely place and the entrance of the old town. It’s a good a start spot to discover this lovely and colorful city. We stayed here for three nights and walked through it everyday. I always tried to take a photo of it because it has different views.
