Featured in the cover pic is the OLD FACTORY BUILDING. Cool to visit, but not where the tour is or where cigars are made any longer. In order to visit the new building, first go get tickets at Hotel Saratoga (near the Capitol -- downstairs in the room to the right of the entrance). And then take a less than... More

There are two Partagas Cigar Factory buildings. The original, historical building is now just a museum but you can also go to the current factory nearby for a tour of the working factory. They make thousands of cigars each day and it was amazing to watch them work. It's truly an art!

I was here late January and they were no longer offering tours, and production of actual cigars had moved out of downtown Havana. They have a nice store selling Authentic Cuban cigars which are still fairly pricey. You can buy knock off Cuban cigars in Havana rolled by locals and will fool your friends for $40CUC for 25 Cohiba Cigars.... More

Our group had a tour of this tobacco factory and learned about the rolling and making of cigars. There is no retail here but just around the corner is the shop of Romeo and Juliet for purchase. We enjoyed the tour because on a previous day we had a tour of a tobacco farm and this put it all together.

Visited the store last week (Jan 17). Longtime Cuban cigar smoker on my first visit to Cuba. I was expecting them to have everything, but their stock was quite lean. Got a few boxes: Lusitanias, shorts, D4s, Hoyo Epi 1s. Didn't have any Partagas Salomones or 898s, which I was hoping to find there. Also wanted a 50 cab of... More

This is the place to learn about and especially buy one of Cuba's finest produce next to Havana Club - the cigars. Here's a great variety, the prices are reasonable - and you can smoke as much as you want inside the shop. No health problems here! Have a rhum, too; enjoy life as if it never ends - the... More

Do not be fooled by the locals blocking your way to get in the place. They are trying to get you to walk around the side of the building and sell you their own brand of cigars. Go around these people and go in, and you will see how amazing the four stories of ruinous factory must have been. The... More

This was an interesting but disorganized visit. It required a ticket that you could not buy on premises so required an agent and a tip to have someone go buy you a ticket. Many people just slipped in for free. Not sure I'd do it again or even recommend but got some interesting information about the process.
