  • I climbed the tower to take in the view to see the whole old town from above. You walk down a ladder made of iron and glass and after about 170 steps you get to the top. The view is beautiful, the brightness very strong. The entrance fee, for those who want it, also includes the entrance to the darkroom: with an ancient game of mirrors you can see different views of the city in real time. with people walking along the streets! It's an evocative experience. Paco, our Cicero presented the whole city with a touch of irony.

  • Beautiful view over Cadiz. Very special to see the town throug the Camera Obscura.
  • The woman who operated it was nice and quite funny. It was actually better than in Habana! The views are beautiful and you can see whole Cadiz. Be prepared to walk up cca 170 stairs, no lift at the moment.
