What people say

"It is a large building just next to the Cathedral. It was created in 1785 as an archive for all the documents and materials about the history of the Spanish Empire. Although it is not possible to see any of the document (a special request with a valid reason has to be presented in advance), it is possible to enter for free and admire the beautiful building."
" Entrance is free and the inside of the building is worth a look. Don't miss the drawing of Hernan Cortes."
