The Provincial Historical Archive of Teruel is a state-owned archive, whose management is entrusted to the Autonomous Community of Aragon by an agreement signed with the Ministry of Culture on June 2, 1986.

The Order of March 10, 1958 (BOE of April 25, 1958) of the Ministry of National Education inaugurates the official life of the Provincial Historical Archive of Teruel.
Prior to this Order and despite the existence of the Royal Decree of November 2, 1931, issued by the Ministry of Justice with the Ministry of Public Instruction and Fine Arts (Madrid Gazette of November 13, 1931), by which provides that protocols over a hundred years old be incorporated into the service of the Facultative Body of Archives, Librarians and Archaeologists, we do not know that any effort has been made in this regard. We only have news of the formation of a Provincial Patronage for the promotion of Libraries, Archives and Archaeological Museums in compliance with the Decree of October 13, 1938 (BOE of October 26, 1938), but that due to circumstances of the Civil War, is unable to perform its functions.

It currently has its headquarters in the old Escuelas del Arrabal, a building restored for its current destination and inaugurated on June 3, 1987.

The instruments for the description of the documentary collections are available to users in the researchers room.


The beginning of the microfilming activity dates back to 1981. The person who started this work is Mr. Francisco Javier Aguirre González together with a team made up of Ms. Carmen Moles Villamate and Ms. Pilar Abós Castel.
The work carried out in this first stage is carried out thanks to the transfer of a planetary machine S.M.A.1 sent by the Center for Conservation and Microfilming of the Ministry of Culture. The microfilming is not carried out on documentary funds deposited in the Provincial Historical Archive, but with funds from forty-eight Municipal Archives of the province and from the two Historical Communities of Albarracin and Teruel.
Of this work, the Provincial Historical Archive conserves four hundred and thirty-one rolls in negative copy, its camera originals are in the current Microfilming Service of the Directorate of State Archives, and its positive copies are in the Institute of Turolenses Studies of the Hon. Provincial Council of Teruel.
As the new building has facilities for a photography laboratory, the reprography technician position was created in 1986 and a request was made to renew the microfilming machine. Two years later the Ministry of Culture sent a Kodak model MRD2 device.
Currently in the laboratory only the camera original is made, continuing in Madrid the rest of the process (development, quality control, negative and positive copies, etc.) that once concluded there, the negative copy is sent to us.
Up to now, the documentation (parchment and paper) of the Subsection of the Council of Teruel and the notarial protocols of the municipality of Fuentespalda have been microfilmed.


It is in charge of the control of the conservation conditions in the documentary deposits and of the restoration of the Archives documents, both on paper and on parchment, that are affected by causes of chemical, physical or biological alteration.


Installed on the same floor as the unloading dock, it is a small room with a metal door, but it lacks a gas evacuation system, so it is waiting to solve this problem for its start-up.
