Camera Obscura, Tavira
(4.2/5 based on 340+ reviews on the web)
See a historical piece of technology in action at Camera Obscura, housed in an old water tower.

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.

  • Happened upon this whilst walking around Tavira €3.50 each and was ok. Shows Tabira but nothing more than walking around Much better value than Edinburgh obscura which I would not pay for. 
  • There is no other place with this kind of experience in Tavira or the Algarve, is unique. Very well organized.

  • Fabulous use of an old water tower. Great fun and views of Tavira. Superb guide and only a few Euros entrance.
