Well.worth the effort. It’s a climb up to the top but the camera obscura is well worth the effort, with great views over the city.

Is it worth the climb to the top for 360 views of the city. The camera obscura was fascinating and the talk by Anna very informative to get a really good perspective on the history of the city of towers 😀

Opens at 10 am. Best to enquire for the time of the next presentation in your chosen language, then buy tickets and come back at the correct time. 140+ steps to the top and no lift. Not wheelchair accessible. Roughly half hour presentation but interesting...More

Clear skies probably helped, but really good visit. The staff were great, especially the young woman on the Camera Obscura. She was very informative, and made the visit fun.

Historic structure to take panoramic views of Cadiz. Highly recommend if you have time. Not sure if you are allowed sunrise and sunset views on my Wishlist. Hint : take a tour if it’s offered if you have no transport

The camera was cool, but the bit that was the most scenic was seeing the panoramic views on the roof. A great 30 minute tour that allows photographers to see all of Cadiz.

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
