San Marcos - City Plaza Tuxtla Gutierrez - Mexico

The Catedral de San Marcos flanks the plaza cívica to the south. The strange side-view reflects the many renovations inflicted on the building over five centuries. The landmark not only attracts historians who walk through time from the 20th century facade to the colonial apse, but also curiosity-seekers who gather each hour below the clock tower. When the little hand reaches the 12 on the antique German clock, a series of apostle figures parade to the tune of 48 bells. While you wait for the event, check out the variety of elaborate crafts sold on the plaza.
