  • Tower of more than 100 that had watching boats of traders who arrived in Cádiz in Cádiz. A small museum up to the terrace where there is a beautiful view of all Cadiz has become. Camera Obscura at the top, different. The visit cost 6 euros

  • Older, small, accustomed to seeing any thing that technology is able to teach us, it is difficult to amaze us with nothing. But even when is something so simple technically as the conjunction of a mirror and a lens. From a watchtower that dominates all the city is can observe an image in movement real of any corner of cadiz that have to the view. In short something different to what is usually see.

  • You do not know what Nice that can reach this excursion, until light closes and opens the little window of the periscope. Very informative. Fun for the kids and the not so young views from the great terrace. Best views of evening, as the Sun are back.

  • 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.
