Torre do Relógio de Castelo Branco

In the heart of the historic area, stands the imposing Torre do Relógio, unavoidable in the landscape of Castelo Branco, as it is visible from the most diverse locations. Its creation is related to the expansion process of the city and the enlargement of the limits of the walls, since it was created where there was an old tower of the outer wall, adapted for its current functions in the 19th century. Its characteristic hourly chimes are heard by residents and visitors alike.
