Worth a walk through, there are free tours at 11am, we didn't go on the tour. It was the setting for Carmen and is a very attractive structure, now part of the University. Some good cheap eats nearby next to the tram tracks.

Great 18th century tobacco factory, the setting for the opera Carmen, now a major part of Seville University. You can just walk in off the street! Great on a hot day, as the interior spaces are cool and shady.
