Camera Obscura at Ulysses Tower
Make sure you don’t miss this fun spot! There is one secret tool hidden inside Ulysses Tower, known as Camera Obscura. It’s a big spherical plate hidden in a dark room facing a small opening hole at the top. The dark room is pretty small, you will need to queue to get into the room according to the demonstration schedule.
Using the reflection concept, it’s able to provide you a real time 360 degree view of Lisbon at a magnified scale. It’s like a spy tool for me, very interesting and definitely a fun discovery! You can look at the photo below to view the city reflection on this big plate.
