  • A beautiful panoramic view of the city of Cadiz and the old. Place is situated in the heart of Casco antiguo and well preserved.

  • The Tower offers the prospect of not only, but also lots of interesting info on the way upwards. The look is stunning as you can see all Cadiz from above and has such a great view on the sea. With 6 euro unfortunately not the most favourable.

  • It is worth climbing the tower. All Cadiz is seen from the heights. The Camera Obscura is super curious and do you an idea of Cadiz from roofs. We love

  • 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.
