Dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the start of the Mexican War of Independence, Reloj Monumental de Pachuca, is one of the best known symbols of Pachuca. Built between 1904 and 1910, the clock tower stands at 40 m (131 ft) tall, and has machinery identical to that of the Big Ben in London. The tower, made from white stone in a neoclassical style, contains four levels. The first level has four doors and provides access to the building, while the second floor has two separate balconies overlooking the plaza. Inspect the clock's machinery on the third level, then hear the sounds of bells ringing from the fourth and final floor.

  • Located in the center of the city, the big clock is an icon and landmark of Pachuca. Very interesting place to visit, and walk around.

  • A monument or conical city, unfortunately the day I visited it was full of street vendors and stalls.

  • Appreciate classical architecture and experience hustle bustle of the town of Pachuca. We came on Sunday morning and was fortunate to see the local MP performing their drill in front of the clock tower. Tips: Walk beyond few blocks behind BBVA building and heads towards the Mercado. You will get first hand experience the local doing the business and its much more lively there.
  • Impressive huge clock, still functioning after over a century of being built. There is underground parking right underneath that costs 12 per hour and 3 every 15 minutes after the first hour. The cultural centre ( and toilets) are closed due to the pandemic.
