This was a great place to visit in Cadiz, and we really enjoyed the views from the top of the tower and in the Camera Obscura. It was amazing how clear things were when in focus and that you could see landmarks in every direction. Only slight negative was that the person leading the Camera Obscura went too fast and... More

To see the Camera obscura we would have to wait 90 minutes (which we did not have). Access to the Tower instantly. Very good to overlook the Town and either recognize places you had visited or to look which way to go. If you are interested in the Camera obscura you should start there, booking your Tour in advance. There... More

Not easy to find and a very under stated entrance but well worth a visit. Good guide. Access requires climbing a few (100+) steps.

We had a nice stop at the tower and enjoyed the camera obscura presentation. The views were great and worth the climb and he modest cost.

The tower offers 360 degree views from an open rooftop (Cadiz can be windy!) and also a closed room below. The Camera Obscura is worth the cost (contrary to an earlier critical review). Just remember, you're paying not just for the Camera and presentation (in Spanish and English) but also for the tower upkeep.

Fantastic views and interesting information. Able to see the whole of the city from the dark room. The guide was superb incorporating facts with hilarious asides. Well worth the €6 entrance fee. I managed to lose my entrance ticket DOH but they soon verified I had in fact bought one PHEW! They were very helpful and didn't make me feel... More

I hated the stairs which are made of glass and you can see down which is horrid when you are scared of heights but once up the camera Obscura was fun and the view from the top all across Cadiz was great. It's the highest point of the city I think at least of the older buildings.

Many steps but worth the climb to enjoy the views over Cádiz from the top. The price of €6 per adult includes a guided visit of the camera obscura. Our guide was very informative and made it a fun visit for us and the kids. Care must be taken with children going up and down the steel and glass stairs.... More
