Historical Archive of the Alvargonzález Foundation

It is integrated in the Historical Archive by an organic set of documents and books, accompanied of photographies and objects of all kind that have belonged or have being generated during the life of the ancestors of the family.

If we take into account the first confirmed names in the genealogic tree, there are dated in the 15th century, and it is not hard to imagine the wealth and variety of accumulated information of each family wing during this time, collecting their files of all kind of professions and historical events, or simply the testimony of the daily events of each of them.

To the main documental collection, called Alvargonzález, it has been added by acquisition of the external collection – but of great relevance for the study and knowledge of the local history – of Ricardo García Rendueles and the Zulaibar family. In each of them the typological variety goes from family letters, with official or commercial institutions, to the sailing diaries, accounting documents or testaments deeds and notarial protocols generated out of the most diverse situations.

It is located in the same building that serves as headquarter of the Foundation, in order of having a good conservation of the collection, an adequate space was habilitated, with double goal of facilitate the access and ensure its conservation.
