  • In a corner of a street as if nothing is stands the Torre Tavira, nothing spectacular until discover its secret. Impressionable and amazed of as is sees all the city and as can increase both the images with some mirrors. Better that some binoculars. You will like and will enjoy all.

  • The visit is good, but in Cadiz, there are sites much more interesting. The terrace has great views of Cádiz, but the Camera Obscura I was disappointed.

  • Great views over the city. Also camera obscura is fascinating, even though it's very simple setup - it's still a little wonder.
  • How not to mention that it's probably one of the main reasons many people go into the city old center of Cadiz. Not only you'll enjoy a wonderful, panoramical view, but it is overall a place with an important history over the last centuries, when Cadiz was a major harbour. Very interesting to learn about the dark-room concept and mirror reflection. Of course the guide will make you experiment it. More than worth it: a must see!
  • Nice views from the rooftop. The black-room concept is interesting and I recommend it because you quicky see the main spots to visit in Cadiz. Must say that the black-room guide just speaks Spanish and English
  • Great view, interesting explanations and a very kind staff!
  • Very nice to see 'all' of Cádiz through the camera obscura and climb the tower.
