  • From the top you get unbeatable views 360 ° of the city. It has the so-called "Camera Obscura", where with a set of lenses the image of the city is projected on a giant screen. Very entertaining and devertido for children. It is worth paying the price.

  • 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.
