Torre Del Reloj, Cartagena Reviews

  • Magical place. Main entrance to the walled city of Cartagena. Colorful and full of people which give you an inside look at colombian culture.

  • Beautiful and beautiful. Worth dealing with the crowds and walking. The food and drinks are awesome and most people speak English if needed. Just be prepared for the crowd after dark. It turns more "adult"!

  • While in Cartegena you will inevitably pass by the clock tower. The area, for being in the old part of town is nice, but per usual, there are people who want to sell you things. The clock itself seems to be kept in very good condition and was beautiful against the surroundings.

  • Amazing place! Full of life all day and all night long. The christmas lights make for wonderful pictures.

  • Great place to people watch and enjoy a drink. Great Salsa Bar on the square.
