  • It is the highest viewpoint of Cadiz and has a Camera Obscura that allows US to contemplate Cadiz from the air in real time, at the time that the guide explains the views is chulisima. The complete tour lasts about 40 minutes. Are there discounts for large families (5 euro per person)

  • Really enjoyable experience. The camera obscura was a great way to see the city from another perspective. We did it towards the end of our trip and it was nice to spot places we'd already seen and reminisce, but it could equally be a good way to get a good sense of the place to plan ahead. Spaces are limited. We had to wait an hour for the next slot in English, but it was worth it. The market is nearby if you want to pass the time whilst waiting. Also, in addition to the camera, you can also go up to the roof of the building for amazing views across the city.
  • A must see if you are in Cadiz. The guided virtual tour of the city through the "camera obscura" is well worth the visit. Also great view from the roof terrace, perfect for some nice photos of the city.
  • Go here first!! The tour with the camera oscura gives a great overview over the city and you can get an idea of where you want to go next. Also a nice view :)
  • Nice view arround Cádiz.
  • If you have to pick just one cultural visit in Cadiz... that's the one! The 360 panorama view from the rooftop is breathtaking. And the camera obscura demonstration is a delight and one of the very few in the world: for a moment you'll become the Big Brother and will be able to spy the people in the streets from the tower.
