Camera Obscura, Tavira

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.
