University of Seville Review

At the far end of the Jardines de Murillo, opposite Calle San Fernando, stands what used to be the Real Fábrica de Tabacos (Royal Tobacco Factory). Built in the mid-1700s, the factory employed some 3,000 cigarreras (female cigar makers) less than a century later, including Bizet's opera heroine Carmen, who reputedly rolled her cigars on her thighs. Free guided tours in English are available Mon. to Thurs. at 11.
