The Bridge Gate was constructed in 1631 as Cartagena de Indias became a walled-in city. This main entrance has been damaged, restored and changed several times. Today’s version of this beautiful Gothic clock tower – designed by Luis Felipe Jaspe Franco – was finished in 1888. The 98.5 foot Torre del Reloj is a symbolic landmark of Cartagena. It is located near the head of Bahía Las Ánimas. Walk beneath its arched portal and you enter Old Town’s Plaza de los Coches.
