The Clock Tower

The clock tower is a neogothic style building from the XIX century and is the entrance to the Walled City.
It is the most representative architectural symbol of Cartagena being the city's main gate since 1631.  This imposing work was built by Luis Felipe Jaspe, a native of Cartagena, and it is located right on top of one of the entrances with direct access to the walled city, at the site know as " Boca del Puente" or "Puerta del Reloj".
