On the western side of Plaza del Triunfo, the Archivo de Indias is the main archive on Spain's American empire, with 80 million pages of documents dating from 1492 through to the end of the empire in the 19th century – a most effective statement of Spain's power and influence during its Golden Age. A short film inside tells the full story of the building along with some fascinating original colonial maps and documents. The building was refurbished between 2003 and 2005.
