This ancient sundial is located at the end of Calle Las Damas, the square of the highest Fuerte Invencible. It was built in 1753 by Governor Francisco Rubio y Peñaranda, and located so as to allow the officials of the Casas Reales (now converted into a museum) to be able to tell the time by giving a glance from the eastern windows of the building. The sundial has some parts that indicate the hour following the movement of the sun. On the south-east you can see the hours before noon, while on the south-west than in the afternoon. It is the only watch of its kind on the island. It was restored on the occasion of the fifth centenary of the Discovery of America.

Questa antichissima meridiana si trova alla fine di Calle Las Damas, sul piazzale più alto del Fuerte Invencible. Fu costruito nel 1753 dal governatore Francisco Rubio y Peñaranda, e situato in modo da permettere ai funzionari delle Casas Reales (oggi trasformate in museo) di poter sapere l'ora dando una semplice occhiata dalle finestre orientali dell'edificio. La meridiana possiede alcune parti che indicano l'ora seguendo il movimento del sole. Sulla parte a sud-est si possono leggere le ore prima di mezzogiorno, mentre su quella a sud-ovest quelle del pomeriggio. È l'unico orologio di questo tipo sull'isola. Fu restaurato in occasione del V Centenario della Scoperta dell'America.
