Great wiew over Cadiz from the top of the tower but really more interesting was the Camera obscure with perfect over wire over the town and with a good guide to point out the places to visit.

Climbing up the tower is a great exercise and offers you a perfect view over the whole city of Cadiz. Don't miss the "Camera Obscura" demonstration with a lot of information and funny anecdotes of the city.

Fun thing to do. Great views at the top of the tower and the added attraction of the camera obscura. Reasonably priced and easy to find.

Great view from here, up an incline rather than many steps so do-able if mobility problems not too extreme. There's a fine 360 degree view than great to share with fellow tourists and its worth the effort.. Its on the Cathedral ticket so no extra...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
