General Archive of the
Indies

Presentation of the General Archive of the Indies

The General Archive of the Indias is basically responsible for custody of the resources produced by the institutions created by the Spanish Administration for the government and administration of Spain's overseas territories. These institutions are: The Council of the Indias and the Office Secretariats, the Contracting House and the Consulates of Seville and Cadiz. It also preserves other resources from less important institutions, as well as those from private individuals linked to Spanish colonies in America and Asia.

The aim of the Archive is to conserve these resources and, through their organisation and description, encourage their dissemination to all citizens.
