Events: conferences, courses and seminars

The National Historical Archive organises different history and archive-related events:


A selection of reproductions of documents on the Baroque period is currently on display in the entrance hall of the National Historical Archive, giving prominence to the writers and artists of this brilliant moment in cultural history (Lope de Vega, Calderón, Velázquez, etc.).

The Archive collaborates with other institutions in organising exhibitions by lending originals; this is arranged through the Reference Department.
