The Torre del Reloj (Clock Tower) is one of the most emblematic buildings in Chiclana. It is a civil construction of the18th century, originally part of the old Cabildo.

Popularly known as Arquillo del Reloj, being near the San Juan Bautista Church, which lacks bell towers, it was given a religious use.

Built with oyster stone it consists of four sections: the base with the arch that leads to the Plaza, the main body where the clock mechanism is with an octagonal shape and finally the Dome with a semi-spherical volume which is crowned with a forged Latin cross.
