Clock Tower

This is one of the most symbolic architectural elements of the city of Horta.

It was built between 1700 and 1720 alongside the southern façade of the primitive mother church, afterwards destroyed by a lightning bolt. The first mechanism of this town clock dates back to 1747.

Adjacent to Garden Florêncio Terra it provides an exceptional panoramic view over the city and the three islands composing the triangle - Faial, Pico and São Jorge.
