This is a unique experience. From the outside the Camara Oscura looks like any other tall tower you'd see in European cities. And there is a fenced-in observatory that provides a view of the entire city. What makes it unique, however, is the use of a "periscope" like device at the very top of the tower than projects an image onto a large dish. The operator controls the periscope and you see multiple views of the city in all directions -- close up and personal. It's very different and fun to experience. Because it's in Macarena, the views are not as breathtaking as from Giralda Tower which is right in the midst of the historic city center -- but it's well worth the visit. It's a 30-minute walk from Triana.
