One of Havana's oldest and most famous cigar factories, the landmark Real Fábrica de Tabacos Partagás was founded in 1845 by Spaniard Jaime Partagás. Since 2013, the factory has moved from its original building behind the Capitolio to this location just off Calle Padre Varela in Centro Habana. Tickets for factory tours must be bought beforehand in the lobby of the Hotel Saratoga.
