The Royal Tobacco Factory (Spanish: Real Fábrica de Tabacos) is an 18th-century stone building in Seville, southern Spain. Since the 1950s it has been the seat of the rectorate of the University of Seville. Prior to that, it was, as its name indicates, a tobacco factory: the most prominent such institution in Europe, and a lineal descendant of Europe's first tobacco factory, which was located nearby. It is one of the most notable and splendid examples of industrial architecture from the era of Spain's Antiguo Régimen.

Interesting history and a beautiful building. I'm a sucker for free attractions with a cool story to tell and this was certainly one of them. It's a university now so it's bustling with students and professors going about their day which kind of adds to the appeal. You're free to wander around and take in some of their collection of replica sculptures and statues from many different eras. There's also free tours offered if you get there early enough.
Awesome building, with plenty of details and young ambiance because of the University of Seville, the largest of Andalusia. Entrace is free but, to enjoy the experience I would recommend visit it with a guide. In their website, University of Seville has a visit service wich is great, and some companies in the city guides people through the building and its history.
Once a tobacco factory, now a university. Beautiful entry gates and interior.
Great building and you can wander round yourself.
It's the former tobacco factory, converted into a university. It is nice (and free) to walk through the building which is worth it. Other than that it's just a university so students everywhere and not much explanation of the history of the worlds first cigarette factory. If you love cats make sure to take a look in the moat around the factory where there are many!
This is an impressive and interesting building to explore. It is open and free to enter most days. I haven't tried the free tour yet.
Just happen to walk through here and see all the figures on top of the building. Very unique indeed.
