Torre Del Reloj - Review
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!

Torre Del Reloj, Cartagena Reviews
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.
I had a great time in that area but beware of the many salesman. Over Kill!
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.
Very live place at night with cool bars all around !! There is corner with chairs and tables where you can order beer and watch everyone trying to hustle (people watch)!!
Awsome spot if your looking to have the best coffee in the world. Right on Coach square, by the main entrance of the walled city and the clock tower. It has a great view of the square, the clock tower is in your face and the back ground you get to appreciate the new city.
