  • Good view of Cadiz and nice demonstration of camera obscura. Busy and noisy with lots of school trips. No lift and 170 + steps
  • Camera obscura offering good views of Cadiz and the surrounding areas. Good realtime presentation explaining the local architecture, historical development of the town, towns and industry you can see on the horizon. You have access to the roof on the top floor which provides photo opportunities. Access is via stairs only, not that many or too steep.
  • Good explained camera obscura speaking at least English, Spanish and German. Nice view over the town.
  • Interesting experience. The camera obscura was a great way to get a 360° view of the city, and the views from the terrace were fantastic.
  • This tower gives such a beautiful view over the whole city cádiz. This is really worth your money and they also have a nice show of approximately 15 minutes with a camera obscura and shows a optical effect of the view. Furthermore the entree fee is very cheap because it only cost 6 euros and they also give a discount of 1 euro to people over 65, students with their student ID, large families, groups that are bigger then 10 people and finaly disabled people. It is totally worth it!
