    The Tower of Tavira offers a splendid and tremendous view over the whole city. It is like a 360 degree voyage above the cultural and historical heritage of Tavira. Up to 15 people can attend each session, which is accompanied by a guide who describes and explains the monuments, the culture and the history of this wonderful city. You will discover the city in a very different way: 100 feet above sea level from the inside of the former water tower.

    Inside the Camera Obscura you will look at the city in real time; you will have a lively panoramic view over the whole city and its surroundings. Each session lasts approximately 20 minutes. You will find the times scheduled at the reception desk. We would like to remind you to save your ticket and hand it to the tour guide.

    The old water tower was built and opened in 1931 to supply water to the whole city. Although it has not been used for a long time, it has always been a charismatic and extraordinary construction.

    With a pioneer project it has now been renovated and converted into a point of cultural interest and a unique tourist attraction: the Tower of Tavira with the installation of the first Camera Obscura in the Algarve.
