Don’t miss its projection room, where a special pinhole camera displays panoramic views of the city outside.

  • Well worth a visit to take in the views across Cadiz and the bay across to Rota and El Puerto de Santa Maria. There are a few flights of stairs to negotiate on the way up so beware. You can go onto th...  more »

  • Superb place to view Cadiz. Well worth a visit. When you see the camera obscura try to stand to the left of the presenter, as the views spin around.
  • 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
  • They let you know when you get 90% off that you will need a ticket. The towers not that tall but definitely not climbing and again!
  • 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!
