Archivo General Militar de Guadalajara (AGMG)


The Archivo General Militar de Guadalajara (AGMG) is a state historical archive which is directed by the Ministerio de Defensa (Ejército de Tierra). Under Real Decreto 2598/1998 of 4 December 1988 (Reglamento de archivos militares) it was designated as a National Archive. It occupies five buildings with eight large warehouses originally used as army barracks (they have thick walls, high ceilings, large doors and windows, spaces originally used as kitchens and dormitories and for storage). Work continues on modernising the buildings to turn them into an Archive Centre. There are currently 20.191 metres of shelves of documentation.
