“Great building, interesting university.”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

The building is simply superb, and it is used to host cultural events for which it is well suited. the university as a centre of research and teaching is good - its main strength is probably its relations with industry, among the best in Spanish universities.

“University of Seville”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

Very beautiful building - the exterior and interior are worth taking a look at. A dominant building in the city you should stop to see.

“Good Architecture”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

The Real Fabrica de Tabacos is also known as La Tabacalera, and it used to be a big factory to make cigars. However that closed many ages ago and the buildings have been converted to classrooms for the University. One can enter the grounds and take a look around and see the patios. There is a chapel, but it is usually closed.
