Banco de la República Cali

The Centre for Documentation, Banco de la República Cali is a public space for specialised consulation and research, targeted at the recovery, conservation and promotation of documents that, in different ways, address diverse elements of the Valle del Cauca region and its area of influence along the Pacific coast of Colombia. Among the collection’s holdings there are regional newspapers dating from the nineteenth century to the present, magazines and bulletin edited and publishing across the region, photographic and family album archives, maps and plans, ephemera, fanzines and uncommon publications from Cali, among other materials. The Centre is also an access point for the wider library network of the Banco de la República.
