  • A place to not miss. It has recently being restored so it's beautiful from outside and even more interesting on the inside. Take the tour you wont regret taking it and Knowing how a English clock works. (The machinery is the same from the ones who built the big Ben at London)
  • The center of Pachuca, the monumental clock is a great place to catch up with friends, pass a Sunday with the family or visit and take some photos.
