Torre del Reloj is a special majestic old tower with a clock outside and a bell , connecting on one side the house next door, the neighbourhood of the City Hall.

it's just a clock tower like one might see almost anywhere else in Europe. If one has never seen one, then they may be impressed, but otherwise, it´s nothing special.
