Archivo de los Indios, Seville, Andalucia, Spain, Europe
The impressive looking Indian Archives building in Seville was originally designed as a covered market, though then subsequently used to house the city's Academy of Fine Arts. However in the 18th century King Carlos III decided that all documents relating to the new world be archived under one roof, and the Archivo de los Indios (Indian Archives) was born.
Today it represents one of the single most important archives of their kind anywhere in the world. Of particular note is the journal of Colombus which is also housed here. Aside from the literary material the place is a veritable museum, with lots of antiques throughout.
