"Archivo de Indias" Archivo de Indias Tip by GeoDenia

Archivo de Indias, Sevilla: 13 reviews and 20 photos

Since 1785, this building on the west side of Plaza del Triunfo has been the main archive of Spain's American empire. Its endless shelves hold more than 80 million pages of documents dating from 1492 through to the end of the empire in the 19th century. Most of the archive can only be consulted with special permission, but there are rotating displays of fascinating maps and documents, often including manuscripts penned by Columbus or Cervantes or conquistadors such as Cortés or Pizarro.
