Whether you’re interested in the Camara Oscura or not the views from the top of the tower are worth the entrance alone. The camara oscura itself is fascinating and you get a very interesting 20 minute presentation on how it works and a 360 degree...More

Okay, I get the "camera obscura" point of interest. Where do we go from here? All those other bigger fish out there are calling our names. So, I get it that this is a 1700's construction; it is the tallest of the remaining 160 towers...More

The tower is the highest of Cadiz's lookout towers and now has a camera obscura. The view from the top is excellent and the guided show in the camera obscura is very good with Spanish and English descriptions by the guide.

This is a modestly high building in relation to the city of Cadiz. If you wish to see the city from this perspective, come along. Otherwise its an expensive view point and the fee is the same even if you aren’t able to view the...More

They seem to run very frequently I'd say about every 30 minutes, but the problem is that it may not be in your language every 30 minutes. Although this would not be ideal I still think you'd enjoy the camera obscura. No need... More
