#BeyondTheWall: the factories

The factories beyond the wall
To continue with our challenge #BeyondTheWall we want to write today about the old factories of Seville. Those ones that were abandoned and forgotten.
The old glass factory “La Trinidad”
Was situated at Miraflores street, close to the city center. Was built in 1900 and is one of the most beautiful examples of industrial arquitecture in our city of Seville. In 2002 was definitely closed.

Silk Factory of Santiago Pérez
Also situated at Miraflores street was built in 1917 like a mix of the typical regionalism and mudejar styles of the south of Spain. Nowadays we can appreciate the whole facade because some years ago was transformed in private apartments.
Royal Artillery factory of Seville
Situated at San Bernardo's neighborhood, also outside the old walls. Built in 1565 and used for the manufacture of weapons and bells, some sculptures like Giraldillo or the Lions of the Congress of Spain in Madrid.

The factory suffered a reconstruction during 18th century and that period was the best thanks to the weapons and canons made for América.


During the First World War was also so productive till 1991 when the goverment decided to cease the activity. Usually this building is closed but some months ago the citycouncil did some maintenance works and now we can visit the place where has some different exhibitions.
Cross Pirotechnics Factory
From 1847 this antique factory was restored some years ago. Now is one of the buildings of the University of Seville.
The most popular area is call “The clock tower” one of the few examples of Art Decó in our city.

The factory closed at the begining of 20th century and was used like a headquarter till the 60s, the was abandoned and despoiled till some years ago when we started the works for the Laws University.
Royal Tobacco Factory of Seville
Today this factory is situated in the city center but during 18th century was outside the city. Built by militar arquitects from the north of Spain and Netherlands it has a special design.

Also has one of the most important Baroques façade in Seville and is one of the biggest buildings of the country.

REctorado US

It deserves a visit to the building, gardens, chuch and the moats.

Between 1954-56 we moved the factory to the other shore of the river and the  building change to be the new main central office of University of Seville.
The new building for the Tobacco Factory, situated in the new and modern neighborhood of Los Remedios and built during the middle 1950s. The style is contemporary industrial arquitecture, plain and built with typical red bricks. The factory closed in 2007 and since is abandoned. The current mayor is having  some negotiations with the company “Altadis” to restore the area and create some gardens and a public  place for the citizens.
