The Old Tobacco Factory is a building built in stone during the eighteenth century as the headquarters of the first tobacco factory established in Europe
It has two courtyards, the first, called the Clock and formerly the Cuadras, is rectangular with two floors and initially contained a fountain that is currently located in the outer market, in front of the San Telmo Palace. The second patio was formerly called the Fieldad because it was weighed tobacco. It is the point of confluence of the four main doors of the building and that makes it to develop an intense university life.
Inside it houses a large part of the most significant works of art treasured by the University of Seville.
