A new view of Cádiz

Cádiz is known for its many towers that rise above the buildings. torreThese towers were used as look out points in the olden days to protect the city from pirates and other invaders. Yesterday we visited the most famous one, the “Torre Tavira.” The Torre Tavira has been turned into a museum that tells the history of Cádiz and its towers. It also has a special lens on the top called the Camera Oscura. This lens when reflected with mirrors projects onto a screen inside showing the entire city. camera oscuraThe students were fascinated! Afterwards they climbed to the top of tower and took pictures with each other. It was also a great opportunity to get some aerial shots of the city!

After visiting the tower, students went to the beach to either spend time with their friends or participate in surfing class. They’re really having a lot of fun in surfing and are excited that they are having such success with the sport!

Tomorrow your sons and daughters are headed on a trip to Conil and then they are going to practice bull fighting at night (with a baby bull of course)! Stay tuned for more photos.
