Description

This was the largest industrial building in 18th-century Europe.

The paintings inside the Royal Tobacco Factory commemorate the women cigar makers who worked there. Highlights include a painting by Gonzalo Bilbao, known for his depictions of contemporary customs and manners in the Seville Museum of Fine Arts, where there are more portrayals of women cigar makers on display. There was formerly a ditch all around the factory with several sentry boxes, indicating that it was used for defensive purposes. It is today the head offices of Seville University.
