  • It is 36 m high and is made up of three parts. The first, in a dodecagonal shape, built in the Almohad period. The second part was chosen by Pedro I, known as "El cruel". The third part, cylindrical, dates from the 18th century, ends with a dome.

Rectorado


The first industrial building in Europe

  • Do not miss the patios that make up the building, especially the Patio del Reloj and the Patio de los Fieles.


  • If you want to know more about the history, try taking the guided tour that takes place every day at 11:00 am.


  • The building, from the 18th century, was established as the first tobacco factory in Europe, which in its heyday had more than 12,000 employees.


  • Since the 15th century, tobacco was brought from America and processed in Spain in various smaller factories.


  • Two different areas stand out in the building: the one that was used for manufacturing activities; that occupied two thirds, and the one destined to the warehouses, the lobby and the dwellings.


  • Upon entering through its main facade, next to the stairs, were the homes of those who occupied the most important positions in the manufacturing structure.


  • As of 1950, the building houses the Rectorate of the University of Seville. In this decade, reconstruction work was undertaken to adapt and restore the old building.


  • The moat that surrounds three of its outer sides is striking. They were created as a form of defense, taking into account that the factories were located on the outskirts of the city and in a conflictive area at that time.


  • Currently, you can visit the interior freely and through a guided tour. The latter includes the patraninfo, the Gallery of Rectors, the New Pavilion, the Central Patios, the Faculties of Philology, Geography and History, the Library, the Patio del Arte, the Old Prison, the Main Chapel and the Chapel.

  • Leaving the Park behind, a few steps further on, we find the immense stone building, which was the old tobacco factory and today houses the University Rectorate.


  • It was a very interesting visit from the historical and architectural point of view. Historic, because it was the first factory of its kind in Europe. Architectural, why it is an exponent of a very unique Renaissance and Herrerian style.


  • The baroque façade is impressive through which you access a beautiful staircase that leads to the University auditorium.

  • Flamenco is the quintessential folkloric expression of Andalusia. Its origins are related to the arrival of the gypsy community in the 15th century and fundamentally to the fusion of the gypsy style of Moors and Christians that contributed different nuances.

  • Throughout history there have been transformations. However, the singer, the voice and the guitar remain as alive as in the beginning.
