We had seen the tower but didn't know you could go up. We had the place to ourselves and got a completely different perspective on the city from the top. It was an interesting walk from the city centre too.

I visited the Torre de los Perdigones ('Camera Obscura') last year and the memory has remained so I am re-visiting & taking a friend as I was both impressed and moved by the work of our ancestors.

We came across this as we walked up from the river towards the old town walls. To be honest we didn't know it was going to be there. It was 2 Euro to have the basic view and 4 Euro for the camera obscura view....More

This tower is part of a 19th century pellet factory. The Camara Oscura gives a wonderful all round view of the city. There is a lift and entrance is 4 Euro.

We did not go into this building as we did not have time but well worth a visit. Again built by the Muslims

It was hard to be entirely certain if the tower was open: the guide takes group up every 45 mins or so but in between times it is locked. Glad we waited 35 mins or so: the camera obscura is relatively modern and provides really...More

First, it's worth checking the opening hours - we ended up coming back the next day, because it was closed during the afternoon - so that you don't travel up and have to wait. That said - wow! This was the most rewarding €4 we...More
