The popular tobacco factory was established at the beginning of the 19th century and is an outstanding example of the area´s architectural urban heritage. As a prime source of employment for thousands of workers over two centuries, it forms part of the collective memory for several generations of Alicante citizens. When tobacco production was transferred to the surrounding suburbs, the old factory was taken over by the town council. The restoration project for three of the factory warehouses, where Las Cigarreras Cultural Centre is currently housed, has transformed this place into a prominent Spanish cultural venue.

These restored warehouses now serve as a space for contemporary culture as they house the Caja Negra (Black Box), a multifunctional auditorium for musical and theatrical performances; the Patrimonio Cultural warehouse, a centre for Cultural Heritage, and the Casa de la Música (House of Music).
