If there is a particularly famous Habanos factory in Havana, it is Partagás. For many years this Factory was located at 520 Industria Street, right behind the Havana’s Capitol, in the heart of the city. Today, the Factory is located at 806 San Carlos Street.
The factory was created in 1845 by Don Jaime Partagás, and has been producing this prestigious Habanos brand ever since.
