The residents are very proud of this landmark. It is better to get there by public transportation. There is a lot of traffic in this area and the police do a lot of random traffic stops/inspections.

This spot is a must for a quick photo in Viña del Mar. Very nicely kept. It won't taje more than 15mins to make this stop. There is a public parking lot on the other side of the avenue in case you have a car.

What a lovely way to introduce tourists to a lovely town by having them greeted by this fantastic flower clock (which chimes) as they enter the town from the southern coastal road.

If you are in Vina , you won't be missing the most iconic symbol for the city . The "Reloj" came into existence in 1962 during the Football World Cup hosted by Chile. A must see

Not sure what else there is to say. What you see in all the pictures is exactly what it looks like. Not overwhelming, not underwhelming...exactly like you expect. I would recommend a quick stop on your way through.
