Cozumel’s iconic clocktower, located  in Parque Benito Juarez, (the downtown plaza, or zocalo), has long been a Cozumel landmark, in fact, it’s a popular meeting point for locals and tourists alike.  During this month’s Independence Day celebrations, the Clocktower will also be celebrating it’s 107th birthday.

The clocktower was inaugurated on September 15th, 1910, and installation was completed a year later. The next time you’re downtown, be sure and check out the clock’s faces and you’ll see that some of them are actually in mayan!

Durante años la representativa torre que se encuentra en el parque Benito Juárez (plaza del centro o zócalo) ha sido considerada un punto de referencia; de hecho es un punto popular de reunión tanto de los habitantes locales como de los turistas. En este mes de celebraciones de Independencia, la torre también celebra su 107º aniversario.

 

La torre del reloj fue inaugurada en Septiembre 15, 1910, y su instalación concluyó un año más tarde. La próxima vez que se encuentre en el centro, visite y eche un vistazo a las caras del reloj. ¡Se percatará que algunas de éstas están en lengua maya!
