  • Not only from the rooftop we had a spectacular and dramatic view of Cadiz surrounded by the Atlantic, just before stormy weather broke out! The panoramic view of the city through the camera obscura...  more »
  • Well worth the money. Great views of the old town from both the camera obscura & the tower roof. Quite a climb on several fights of stairs.  more »

  • Not sure €6 was worth this attraction - it’s just a lookout point (own pace) and a 20-minute discussion tour of Cádiz in a dark room with other people. Our tour was in Spanish and English at the same time and since most of the visitors understood Spanish, majority of the description of the places we in Spanish, with the odd translation of what was just discussed in English. We went in September, relatively lower season, so I guess they tried to cram everyone in per tour. We didn’t go into much detail either due to time constraints. If I had a choice, I would rather pay the same amount for the Cathedral entrance fee which also includes access to one of the bell towers also offering 360 views.
  • Ticket for 5 or 6 euros (with or without camera obscura). If you want to see the dark room, it's better to go there in advance, otherwise it could be already booked. Kind and helpful guides. There are approximately 173 steps to the terrace at the top, which offers nice view of Cadiz.
