Ybor City

Ybor City is a National Historic Landmark District, center of Tampa’s Latin community. People get attracted to its restored brick roads, an ongoing trolley system which connects Ybor to South Tampa and Channelside.Ybor got its name from Vicente Martinez Ybor who came to the place in 1880s after his workers on their cigar factory at Key West threatened to create a union for a planned strike. During that time, the Ybor cigar plant was the largest in the world with more than 4,000 workers.

The great depression and machine rollers ended the boom so many factories were demolished. Lately, the region was revived and became home to many galleries, restaurants, shops and cafes. La Septima in Spanish or Seventh Avenue in Ybor City features some historical edifices registered under the National Register of Historic Places. read more…
