Historical Archive

The Historical Archive of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau is one of the most important of its kind in the world today. It hosts an exceptional collection of documents, both for its antiquity and its uninterrupted custody, that reflects much of the history of Catalonia and Barcelona over more than 600 years.

In fact, the importance of the fund was one of the reasons that led UNESCO to accord World Heritage status to Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau in 1997.

The Historical Archive currently occupies new premises in the Administration Pavilion. It has a reading room, information and reprographics service for users and researchers. It also offers the possibility of arranging group visits to find out more about this major documentary collection.
