I agree with those who think far more could have been done by way of exhibition. This is the obvious place to fully explain the Spanish conquest of South America - all we really saw was a lovely old Renaissance building.
We were excited to come here but it was a bit of a let down. There wasn't much to see besides some paintings and a few cases of artifacts. Also you can only access the documents if you are a student in Seville. We wanted...More
There since the sixteenth century, the archive of indies is in fact an archive. You can and should visit it to see the building. They always offer some kind of exhibition worth seeing. The visit will not take more than one hour.
It was very uncrowded and I can’t imagine why, especially since it is one of three UNESCO sites in central Seville and located between the Cathedral and the Real Alcazar (they are the other two UNESCO sites and they are busy). They hold documents from...More

Free Admission to this Museum; if you need a breather, stop inside to take a look. There is a beautiful open courtyard inside where we took a few pictures. There is a nice exhibit upstairs. Stroller friendly and very quiet especially in the morning. Everyone...More
This was my first time going through the Archivo. There were some interesting artifacts: maps, models and log books, from the journeys to the Americas. There was a local school group there so it was interesting to hear the teacher explain several of the items....More
Archivo General de Indias schedule and exhibits (3 Replies)
Does Archivo General de Indias have a website where I could see the schedule and current exhibits ? If not, would anyone know if they are open on Saturdays ? And what is the usual siesta time when everything closes for the afternoon ? Gracias!

Thank you, BennyMalaga. So, do tourist attractions, like the Archivo, practice siesta too ?
