Marlboro factory

Once again, the Marlboro factory is a place I explored during my vacations.
As you can easily understand with its name, it used to be a tobacco factory. Indeed, tobacco was cultivated in France from more than 500 years. Many independant factories were built to turn it into cigarettes.

The buildings, sometimes very old since some of them were built in the 18th century, are listed historical monuments. They should be restored, but nothing is less certain, as is it often the case for this kind of places…
Then the tobacco factory is waiting to know its new destiny, drowsing under the sun of the south of France, hopping that it will come one day…
