Whilst this is a grand building with an impressive staircase there is not a lot to see once you get inside. Entry is free, just as well, but with very limited exhibits it is more like a library where you cannot touch the books. Makes...More
One of the free attractions in Sevilla. You’ve seen it all in 30-40 minutes but it’s still worth a visit. Very nice building from the outside and inside. High closets all around the building where they used to keep the millions of archives.
A unique building with a free entry and small crowds. Housing important archives, the building itself is beautiful. At the end is a short video which explains the history of the building and the most important documents contained here. Combine with a trip to the...More

It was closed by the time I arrived here after 5pm. The exterior building is impressive, with a cross at one side of the building. Suggest you come earlier if you are keen to know more of Seville’s history through its archives.
