DescriptionI believe that is the name of this beautiful and ancient clock...I'm afraid I wasn't very good about naming my shots! I had heard it was a prime spot for pickpocketers who would help themselves as tourists waited for the clock to strike, as it was amazing to watch the little figures come out of the clock on the hour! Everyone looking up and no one watching their wallet! The clock was built in 1410, and added to in 1490.Three main parts make up the astronomical clock, the dial which represents the sun and moon, a calendar dial representing the months and 'The Walk of the Apostles' which shows figures of the Apostles on an hourly basis.
