The most notable landmark in Lucea is the famous clock tower mounted on the Old Court House. It was installed in 1817 and has an interesting history.
The clock was initially intended as a gift from Germany to the people of the island of St. Lucia, however there was some confusion and the clock arrived in Lucea instead. The people of Lucea then decided they wanted to keep the clock and raised money to pay for it. A German landowner residing in the parish then erected it and fashioned the top of the tower after the helmets worn by the German Royal Guard. The clock is still fully functional today.
