Our mirador tower is the only one of mixed type that is conserved in the city and is also one of the very few towers in which one can spend the night recalling the way of life and the work of its old lookouts during the S. XVIII.

The space

Our mirador tower is the only one of mixed type (of "armchair and garita") that is conserved in the city and is also one of the very few towers in which one can spend the night recalling the way of life and the work of its old Lookouts during the S. XVIII. It has been fully recovered and decorated with a style according to its history, use and architectural and heritage singularity. Its restoration has taken us several years of practically handmade work and we believe that the time has come to be able to share it with all those who know how to appreciate it as a way of continuing to pay for its restoration and maintenance.
Due to its structure, not all the view towers of the city can be adapted as apartments; The difficulty involved in the height arrangement of its various rooms, usually joined by a narrow spiral staircase, and the small size of them, make inhabiting it more like living on a ship than in an apartment. But it is precisely there, in its difficulty, where its charm lies. Once the "lookout" reaches the maximum level, the sensation is incomparable. From the watchtower or from the small rooftop where it rests, you can recall the work of the watchmen of the main trading houses with America established in Cadiz during the S. XVIII. Watchers whose routine consisted of watching the horizon waiting for the arrival of the ships of their patrons to, once sighted, communicate with them by signals and thus start the sale of the merchandise.
It was from 1717, when Philip V granted Cadiz the monopoly of trade with America, when most of these towers were built. From that date the city receives the arrival of the Fleet of the Indies, which twice a year brought the wonders of the New World to Cadiz.

Our tower has the following distribution: - Level 1: small kitchen, nice bathroom with shower, large bedroom with bed of 1,50 mts., And access to the 1st. Stretch of the spiral staircase.
- Level 2: large living room with large terrace to the west (with frontal views to "La Bella Escondida") and access to the 2nd part of the spiral staircase.
- Level 3: large terrace to the south, small room of "coat" for the lookout (hammocks, chairs and tables) and access to the 3rd. And last section of the spiral staircase.
- Level 4: Garita, end of the spiral staircase and small roof.

Guest access

The Tower does not have any inaccessible area for the guests nor does it have a shared room with other people. The only thing that is common are the common areas of the estate with the rest of neighbors.

Interaction with guests

I am completely at the disposal of my guests to tell them all the details and secrets of our tower as well as the history of the city if they so desire. And of course to help them resolve any doubts or contingencies that arose during their stay.

Other things to note

The farm where the tower is located is an estate with more than 200 years of age, so it does not have an elevator. The climb to the tower by the stairs is equivalent to a fourth floor, so we recommend you bring a small trolley or similar, you catch air and ... the prize is at the end!

To the people who want to stay in our tower we only ask for a little bit of sensitivity and empathy around the enormous effort that has meant for us to restore it. Or put another way, take care of it as if it were yours. And of course respect and education with our neighbors who in those days will be theirs.
In La Torre we do not allow pets and smoking is not allowed inside. Given its delicate structure the Tower can accommodate two people, not being allowed to visit friends or holding meetings or meetings that exceed 4 people in total.

Javier's apartment in the ancient tower is very special. It was a privilege and a pleasure to be able to stay there. Yes, there are many stairs to the top, but they are well worth it. The views from the terraces are just stunning, you can never have enough. The apartment itself is nice in its simplicity. The location is perfect, right in the historic center and a walking distance from the beaches. And it is quiet during the night. Highly recommended!

My boyfriend and I stayed in the tower in Cadiz for 4 nights in August and had a fantastic time. From the 3 balconies you get amazing views of the beautiful city. We loved to sit out there with a glass of cava in the evenings when the sun was setting! All of the interiors in the apartment are beautiful and old fashioned, and it came really well equipped. The location is brilliant, and Javier was really friendly and helpful.

Staying in Javier's apartment is a great experience: the tower-house is wonderful and will leave you such good memories. The best thing was having dinner on the second terrace with the view of Cadiz roofs. The house is very well located: 10 minutes walk to the train/bus station and to the Caleta beach. It is in the old city of Cadiz and near it you will find a lot of lovely shops, markets and tapas cafes. Javier is a very good host: helpful and very communicative. Get prepared to face a lot of steps to reach the top of the tower-house, but if you are planning to visit Cadiz, Javier's apartment is the place to stay!
