Ybor CityTampa

Learn about the diverse history of Tampa’s enthralling Latin Quarter and find out why it’s known as the Cigar City.

Ybor City is a fascinating district full of historic sights, with an intriguing past entwined with immigration from Spain, Italy and Cuba. Its cosmopolitan nature and cigar industry have made this a bustling neighborhood, earning it the status of Tampa’s Latin Quarter. Explore the museums and galleries for a glimpse into the region’s eclectic past and present.

Make your way along the enchanting streets of the district, which is designated a National Historic Landmark District. Browse the various shops and restaurants along the 7th Avenue commercial street. Come to 7th Avenue at night to catch live music at The Orpheum.

Embark on a walking tour of the neighborhood for a comprehensive overview of its main sights. Visit the Cigar Museum and Visitor Center to learn about the district’s entrepreneurial beginnings. The last cigar factory still in use is the J.C. Newman Cigar Company, which has a small museum and a cigar shop. Take a guided tour of the building and gaze up at its iconic clock tower.

The guides will inform you about Don Vicente de Ybor, after whom the city is named. Hear how he helped to develop the neighborhood and its cigar factories. Dotted around the district are old social clubs that were built to preserve the cultural identities of the Spanish, Italian and Cuban immigrants in the late 19th century. Visit the Circulo Cubano de Tampa, which still operates for special events today.

See the range of historic buildings decorating the streets of Ybor City. Enjoy some Cuban toast and coffee from the array of traditional cafés and bakeries here.

Ybor City is in the northeastern part of Tampa in the western part of central Florida. Ride the TECO Line Streetcar System to the district and get around via the trolley. See nearby sights, including Myrtle Hill Cemetery, the Channel District and Palmetto Beach.
