Automaton Clocks of Aguascalientes

The city of Aguascalientes is well known for the bullfights and cockfights of the Feria de San Marcos, Mexico’s largest national fair. Fewer people know about the public automation clocks that can be found around the city, representing the essence of the local culture. 

One is the bullfight clock tower at the top of the Hotel Fiesta Americana. It opens its doors at 12:00, 15:00, 17:00 and 19:00 hours, important times of day in the bullfight tradition. As the “Paso Doble of Silverio Pérez” song plays, a bull appears around a tiny bullfighter. It is a local tradition to shout “Olé!” when the bull crosses the bullfighter’s coat.
