Visit the facilities of the centennial factory and get an inside look at the La Aurora operation. History, tradition and innovation are three elements that characterize every square meter of the facility. We are talking about the number one activity recommended by TripAdvisor in Santiago de los Caballeros –the world’s largest tobacco area also known by the Valle del Cibao. The Factory Tour begins when you arrive at the La Aurora store. After a brief presentation and video you will be guided through the different areas of the factory.

Deveining - The removal of the veins is a critical process of preparing the tobacco, and we will show you how it is done. Bunching & Rolling - Constructing a cigar is a 3 step process.
