Provincial Historical Files Administration

The Provincial Historical Files Administration began in 1565, and it was aimed to preserve the Foundation Book of the city and the Capitulate Acts. In the year 1889, Governor Quinteros proposed the creation of the “General Files of the Province”. Its aim has been to preserve and save documentary evidences of scribes, taxes, and administrative records.

There is a huge documental heritage which invites visitors to understand the way people in this city think and the legacy of those who preceded us and contributed to the foundation of the province.

It is located at 487, 25 de Mayo Street. Series of conferences, art exhibitions, book presentations among other activities are usually carried out.
