Dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the start of the Mexican War of Independence, Reloj Monumental, is one of the best known symbols of Pachuca.

The tower, made from white stone in a neoclassical style, contains four levels. The first level has four doors and provides access to the building, while the second floor has two separate balconies overlooking the plaza. Inspect the clock's machinery on the third level, then hear the sounds of bells ringing from the fourth and final floor.
