Sevilla – Fábrica Real de Tabacos

The Fábrica Real de Tabacos was the original tobacco factory – the one immortalised in the opera Carmen. Nowadays, it is part of Sevilla University. When the original factory was built in 1725 it was the second-largest building in Spain after El Escorial! It is an imposing Baroque and Rococo building.
