This beautiful enameled clock was built five hundred years ago. When it was assembled, the hour would be struck by two Moor figures and three wise men along with an angel would walk out and bow to the Virgin Mary on Epiphany (January 6) and during Ascension Week (40 days after Easter). On the clock tower, a caption is engraved which says ‘horas non numero nisi serenas’ meaning "I only count happy hours". The clock tower has been reassembled and its old glory restored after years of meticulous work. Tours to the clock take place daily but must be booked in advance.
