In the factory, you can see the manual way of producing the famous Cuban cigars. It does not make a special impression :) Of course, you can purchase cigars at official prices, which is very expensive!
Definitely worth the 5CUC to understand and appreciate how to roll a cigar and all the process end to end even if it is quite weird walking around them and starring. Special mention to the quality men who answered all our questions!
It is really something to watch the skill involved in hand rolling cigars. The rolling is done in a large room by mostly women at individual work desks.

Obviously the place cannot accomodate all of us at the same time so we had to wait outside for probably... 更多

It's impossible to institutionalize the tobacco industry: it's a tradition that gets transferred down generations after generations, it requires care,... 更多
