Visit to the Gate and Clock Tower

The Gate and Clock Tower (“la Puerta y la Torre del Reloj”) can be seen at the main entrance of the walled city. Of the three open doors there, only the central one existed originally; the other two were occupied by a gunroom and a chapel. In 1874, a clock was brought from the United States, and 63 years later it was replaced by the current clock, imported from Switzerland.
