You can observe people busily rolling some of Pinar's (read: the world's) finest cigars in this factory, which was a jail until 1961 but is now tobacco central on the tourist circuit.

Smaller than the Partagás factory in Havana, you get a more intimate insight here, though the foibles are the same – robotic guides, rushed tours and the nagging notion that it's all a bit voyeuristic. There's an excellent cigar shop opposite.
