I visited the Torre de los Perdigones ('Camera Obscura') last year and the memory has remained so I am re-visiting & taking a friend as I was both impressed and moved by the work of our ancestors.
We came across this as we walked up from the river towards the old town walls. To be honest we didn't know it was going to be there. It was 2 Euro to have the basic view and 4 Euro for the camera obscura view. As the chap running the show didn't speak English and our Spanish is zero we... 更多
This tower is part of a 19th century pellet factory. The Camara Oscura gives a wonderful all round view of the city. There is a lift and entrance is 4 Euro.
At least it feels like forever. From the top you see so much of Seville that it is breathtaking. You can use the stairs or the lift. The building itself is interesting and the payoff is a chance to take a photo to show back home that will make them want to come to Seville.
A really good and ingenious way of seing Seville. The guide was really knowledgable and friendly and access to the camera was by lift or stairs, which was good. Stunning views not just by the camera but from the from the balcony around the top. Well worth a visit.
We have a camera Obscura in Dumfries, but this one has guarenteed clear views with a low expectation of rain!

This was the most rewarding €4 we spent on our holidays. We were met at the door by a charming Sevillan, with... 更多
I visited there with my wife and my parents. Great experience! Despite saying he doesn't really speak English, the guide, José Angel, was brilliant! His English is perfectly understandable and he is passionate and very entertaining in his description of the city. The Camera Obscura itself, is a device, situated at the top of a tower, that purely optically, (no... 更多
Agree totally with the last reviewer: For €4 (adults) you are getting. Reductions for under 13's. 1. Best view of Seville from the top of the tower. (There is a lift to the last 10 steps.) 2. Interesting guide to the obscura technology. 3. A guided tour of the city via the camera obscura. The guide that runs this venue... 更多
