José Moreno Villa, Residencia de Estudiantes, 1926

The Centro de Documentación holds an exceptional library and archives, with over forty bequests and collections, a testimony of the most significant literary, artistic, scientific and pedagogic movements in Spain since the end of the nineteenth century.

The Centro places especial emphasis on the intellectual tradition of the Silver Age of Spanish culture, a period which includes the historic decades of the Residencia, especially the Generaciones del 98 and 27, and on the groups and institutions that led the scientific and educational renovation, such as the Institución Libre de Enseñanza, the Museo Pedagógico Nacional and the Junta para la Ampliación de Estudios.
