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. Built between 1904 and 1910, the clock tower stands at 40 m (131 ft) tall, and has machinery identical to that of the Big Ben in London. 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.
