Torre do Relógio de Mértola

It is likely that the clock tower was erected in the late 16th century or early 17th century, in the context of the reorganization of the urban area of the Town Hall square. This building was erected in the vicinity of a set of representative structures of political power, judicial and economic administrative and reusing an old Tower of the wall, mark the edge of Town Hall square and take over as one of the emblematic elements from Mértola. In 1896 the primitive clock is replaced by another more recent than will continue to mark the time of the Old Village to the present day.
