La Torre Tavira is an 18th century lookout tower, in the Baroque style, which is located on the highest point of the old city of Cadiz. The tower is the most emblematic of the watchtowers of Cadiz.

The tower stands 45 meters above sea level, and you can climb its ten flights of stairs and 170 steps to its rooftop terrace.  From the terrace you have the best panoramic views of the city, from the Castle of San Sebastián in the west to the shining dome of the cathedral in the south.

A level below the terrace is the tower’s Camera Obscura. This is a darkened room where you can get a live tour of the city through the lens of a camera mounted on top of the tower.
