University of Seville Review

Fans of Bizet's opera, "Carmen," will want to come here, to see where the famous heroine reputedly rolled cigars on her thighs. 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. Free guided tours in English are available Monday to Thursday at 11.
