  Tavira Tower
by bugalugs

At one time Cadiz had over 160 towers where the citizens of Cadiz could keep watch. When business was booming in 18th century Cadiz because of its trade with the Americas, it became attracted pirates who constantly ransacked the port. The Spanish Kings therefore decided upon towers being built in the city to keep a close watch on the port.

In the Tavira Tower you can see exhibitions and watch a moving film in a darkroom where images of the city are shown on a screen. The device used was invented by Leonardo da Vinci.Open dailt 10-6pm
