The Parochial Archive of Santa Maria del Pi preserves different funds and collections which have been deposited in the course of its history, joining to the generated by the Parish. In different epochs, some individuals have decided to bequeath their funds to the Archive, and so it is possible to look over the social and economic life, both public and private, of the city of Barcelona, especially from the 15th to the 19th Century.
The main fund of the Archive consists in the documentation that the uninterrupted parochial activity from the 12th Century to the present day has been produced. The more ancient documents are a series of, approximately, 2.000 parchments from the notarial point of view, but the sacramental, administrative and economic documentation is reaching a total period of 900 years that arrives to the present day. This is a still alive fund that not ceases to generate documentation.
