Alsodux Clock Tower

From the upper part of the town the urban plot dominates, but it did not have any defensive functionality against possible anemies, as is usual, but served traditionally as a watch for neighbors, when only the wealthy bourgeouis could afford that luxury.

Traditionally, life was governed by solar time, regulated by the shadow proyected on a natural object (a stone or a tree), and in the best cases by a solar clock. During the nineteenth century public clocks would be broadcast in church towers or in public buildings dominating the urban fabric, as in this case.
