Clocktower and around park.
The Clock Tower is built in the 17th century at a very carefully chosen location in the center of the town within the Old Bazaar.Its appearance talks about the rank and political and economic power of the town.
for almost sevently years this clock "sings" at every sixth hour and the songs use to change according to the establishment of the town.
Among the six songs the most popular are:Biljana platno beleshe,Bitola Babam Bitola and Mozart's Evening serenade.
It is mentioned for the first time in 1639 and changed and enlarged in the 18th/19th century.
