ARCHIVES & LIBRARY

Archivo Biblioteca

Our archives and library are at the cultural heart of our institution. Their function is to preserve, expand and disseminate our heritage. The Real Maestranza’s documentation center focuses on heraldry, genealogy and the historical phenomenon of nobility; we also undertake research and facilitate access to external researchers. The centre also has an active accession programme aimed at recovering and preserving historical documents related to the Maestranza’s own history. Our bibliographic collections specialise in publications about Ronda and the Serranía, cavalry and horse riding, bullfighting and travel literature.

Es la base cultural de la institución. Conserva y difunde su patrimonio archivístico y bibliográfico a través de una unidad de información centrada en nobiliaria, heráldica y genealogía, promoviendo la investigación y la recuperación de sus fondos.
