Camera Obscura, Tavira

4.1
See a historical piece of technology in action at Camera Obscura, housed in an old water tower. Visit this tallest building in town, and make your way to the top for views of the surrounding city and countryside. While the technology dates back to the 15th century, the circular projection screen appears much like a live video. You'll receive an overview from a member of staff about the history of the city, its culture, and the landmarks you'll see on the screen.
