It is housed in the old tobacco factory (18C), a superb two-storey building with harmonious classical lines and impressive dimensions. It is the same factory that Prosper Mérimée and later Georges Bizet had Carmen work in. The main façade has a magnificent doorway on two levels with twin columns; on top of the pediment is an allegory of Fame. The arch of the door is decorated with reliefs and medallions bearing the busts of Christopher Columbus and Hernán Cortés.
