Located on the Industria street No. 520, in Old Havana, always had that beautiful colonial building as venue. It is the oldest cigar factory of Cuba and there, emerged the figure of the tobacco reader, profession that still exits aimed at reading aloud to workers.

The brand Flor de Tabacos Partagas was registered in 1845 by D. Jaime Partagas, a Catalan owner of a small cigar factory in Havana. Partagas was at the same time, owner of some tobacco plantations in the region of Vuelta Abajo.

patagasIn 1865, Partagas created the enterprise La Flor de Tabacos de Partagas y Cia. After his death, the brand was bought by the banker Jose Bances who sold it to another family that kept it until 1959 when it became a estate property.

In this visit you can find some of the most famous cigars of Cuba like: Lusitanias and Churchills.

  • Jose Marti International Airport

    José Martí International Airport (IATA: HAV, ICAO: MUHA), sometimes known by its former name Rancho-Boyeros Airport, is located 15 km (9 mi) southwest of Havana, Cuba, and is a hub for Cubana de Aviación, Aerogaviota, and Aero Caribbean, and former Latin American hub for Aeroflot Soviet Airlines.[2] It is Cuba's main international and domestic gateway, and serves several million passengers each year. The airport lies in the municipality of Boyeros and connects Havana with the rest of the Caribbean, North, Central and South America, Europe, and one destination in Africa. It is named in memory of patriot and poet José Martí. In the 1960s the airport was bombed by B-26 aircraft from Brigade 2506, a CIA-sponsored group of Cuban exiles attempting to liberate Cuba from Fidel Castro. Cubans are not allowed to own aircraft or use the airport for either private or commercial flight. Only government-owned aircraft are allowed to use the facilities. There are currently four passenger terminals in use at the airport, plus a freight terminal.[3] Terminal 1 is used primarily for domestic flights. Terminal 2 opened in 1988, primarily for charter flights to the United States. Ten years later on April 27, 1998, the International Terminal 3 was opened by Canada's then-Prime Minister, Jean Chrétien, and former Cuban president, Fidel Castro. International Terminal 3 offers many modern facilities and jetways that the former international Terminal 1 did not provide. Terminal 5 is operated by Aerocaribbean. Today, Copa Airlines is the foreign airline with most flights to the airport, operating 34 flights a week (roughly 5 daily flights) from Panama City, Panama, and Bogota, Colombia. The airport is operated by Empresa Cubana de Aeropuertos y Servicios Aeronáuticos (ECASA).

    • Touring Havana’s Cigar Factories
    • You’ll forever remember the pungent aroma of a cigar factory, a visit to which is de rigueur when you’re in Havana. The factories, housed in colonial buildings, remain much as they were in the mid-19th century. Though now officially known by ideologically sound names, they’re still commonly referred to by their prerevolutionary names. Each specializes in a number of cigar brands of a particular flavor—the government assigns to certain factories the job of producing particular brands. Tours usually bypass the tobacco preparations and begin in the galeras (rolling rooms), then pass to the quality-control methods. Note that the factory names are switched between factories with annoying regularity when one or more close for repair, and that no cameras or bags are permitted.

    • Partagas Cigar Factory Havana Cuba
    • Positions within the production areas of the factory require a minimum of nine months training for the workers who fill them. Quality is always of prime concern, and Authentic Cuba Travel participants will get to see every step of the process, from tobacco coming in off of the trucks to sorting, rolling, wrapping, and even adhering the proper labels to the cigars to ensure their authenticity. It’s truly a unique experience and a chance to view an integral part of Cuba’s history and present up close and personal. Cigar Factory, Havana Authentic tours of Partagas give Havana’s visitors the chance to see locals hard at work. Jobs on the production lines pay a hefty salary increase over many labor jobs in the city, and workers are provided their choice of 3 fine cigars each day. It’s rather unique to see the workers smoking even while they are working, and the tradition of hiring someone to read to the workers while they do their jobs is always of interest to Cuba travellers. Each day begins with the reading of the daily newspaper, followed by works of historic literature. In fact, it is the latter part of this that provides the reason why so many of the factory’s cigars are named for literary figures. Cigar Roller at Partagas Cigar Factory, Cuba Partagas is certainly an incredible thing to do for travelers to Havana, and it is an important part of the Cuban cultural landscape. For those looking to capture the magnificence of the factory, the windows of El Capitolio provide an absolutely brilliant viewing angle. The architecture of Havana brings in thousands of tourists every year who want to be able to see these magnificent buildings in person. Travellers from all walks of life join Cuba Education Tours every year, and whether you are coming for history, architecture, or just to capture a glimpse of life in Havana, Partagas is certainly one attraction you won’t want to miss.

    • Partagas Cigar Factory
    • The Real Fabrica de Tabacos Partagas is something of a Havana institution and this factory produces some of the highest quality Cuban cigars. Tourists will find this attraction located just behind the Capital Building in Centro, where it was founded in the middle of the 19th century. Today, around 400 people work here, producing renowned cigar brands such as both 'Cohibas' and 'Montecristos'. Guided tours are available every 15 minutes, with the tour lasting around 30 minutes in total. At the end of the tour you will be able to purchase cigars by the box, although do note that no photography is allowed.

    • Cigar factory - Partagas
    • Founded in 1845, this is Cuba's largest and perhaps most renowned cigar factory, producing around 5 million cigars a year. The off-yellow and rust-trimmed neoclassical facade is resplendent in the Havana morning sunlight. (You can take your best photos of it from the west-side windows of El Capitolio.) Official tours are only offered at 10am and 2pm daily, although you can sometimes work your way into one of the many tour groups that come through all day long. Throughout the day, you can stop in and buy cigars from their well-stocked shop, La Casa del Habano.

    • This famous Havana cigar factory was founded in 1845. The tour costs US$10, which is overpriced, in my opinion. I didn't go inside the factory, but instead went to the air-conditioned showroom. There is a cigar roller here showing how a cigar is
