Clocktower

torre-do-relgio

Located in the corner of Tuiuti Street, Clocktower has about 40 meters, i.e., double of height of Bolsa Oficial de Café. At the top, four sculptures are placed, which represent agriculture [agricultura], commerce [comércio], industry [indústria] and Sailor [navegante].

Previously, notion of time was made by church bells. It’s believed that when clocks arrived, a meaningful change in population routine was observed, and Bolsa was used as reference of time in people everyday.
