This is in a very trafficky part of the city. You will see this anytime you go from Valparaiso to Vina Del Mar. It was being remodeled and replanted when I was there.

Flower Clock is one of the big attractions here. It's little out of the way if you are visiting other tourist attractions like museums etc but it's worth going. The clock really does tell time. It's on a noisy intersection and you will find bunch of tourists there trying to snap themselves with this clock.

No doubt its a nice idea long back but its not some thing exclusive as its projected by guides . People throng on it but its a small park having this attraction.

Fun place to visit. It is kind of out of the way to get there, but it is fun to visit as you are walking along the beach. The clock really does tell time.

Looked like it told time. Not altogether that impressive if you ask me. Certainly not worth visiting this town just to see it.

The flower clock is a point of beauty amidst the dirt, noise, and turmoil of a noisy intersection. It's near the sea, but on the day we visited we were disappointed by all the trash across the street from the clock, just above the beach. Still, if you happen to visit this city, you should pass by the clock.

A nice walk along the ocean brought us to the Flower Clock. It was pretty and well taken care of and reminded me of the clock in Vienna.

This flower clock sits at the foot of a hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean and was originally built in 1962. The mechanism is Swiss made and the arms are three metres long. We did not dismount from the bus, just moved slowly past as the area was crowded by the tourist hordes.

The residents are very proud of this landmark. It is better to get there by public transportation. There is a lot of traffic in this area and the police do a lot of random traffic stops/inspections.
