This is one of 160 watch towers that the city is famous for. They were used by merchants to keep an eye on the coast for incoming ships. Cádiz used to have a monopoly on trade with South America for a while. There are 2...More

One of the highlights of our day in Cadiz was a trip up the stairs in the Torre Tavira - we were there late in the afternoon and views over the city were stunning.

Our walking tour guide explained about the towers of Cádiz and recommended a visit to this tower. The views were stunning and the Camera Obscura was fascinating. The talk was interesting and informative- definitely worth the entrance fee

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
