Great if you want a detailed overview of Seville and are nosy enough to see people swimming in their rooftop pools and hanging out their washing. We loved it. The guide initially said it was just conducted in Spanish but he actually did it in...More

After four days walking the streets of Seville the view from the camera obscurer was so interesting. Every detail in real time, down to the birds flying round and people putting out washing on the roof! The man who operated it gave a talk in...More

It was great to walk round the gardens (more like a park) and the tour inside was interesting as there were no signs in English (yes I know I should learn more Spanish). It was very interesting and great views from the top.

Came here twice in hope to see how it works, but thought both times it was sunny, they told it was opened only to see the views. Really sad as the places eels very interesting.

We came across this tower on a stroll to the Macaroni area. Not really advertised which is a shame but to our advantage as we were able to walk straight in. Only 2 euros per person. It opens at 11am. Great 360 degrees views. Camera...More

A panoramic view of Sevilla at 45 mts. Then the "tour" with the dark camara is informative and entertaining. The dark camara only works in sunny days. It takes around 1 hour.

If you want a different perspective and views from the ones in the city centre then this is worth the walk. You get 360 views all over the city and can see the river and the main bridges. There is not a lot else there...More

The Spanish presentation about the camera obscura was quite informative, even though our Spanish isn't up to much. He asked where we were from and told us about camera near where we live - we are looking forward to visiting the camera in A-BER-YST-WYTH
