Pacheco Archive

Vigo's past in pictures

The Pacheco Archive will take you through the city’s last two centuries: stunning images of Vigo in a unique collection of 140,000 photos taken between the late 19th century and the early 1970s.

The photographs were taken by several generations of photographers in the Pacheco family, and are a real visual tour through the history of Vigo.

The archive can be visited in the Casa das Artes, right in the centre of Vigo.

Tips and recommendations: 

If you’re interested in seeing this photographic archive, you can book an appointment; many of the collections are not shown to the general public, given the huge amount of images owned by the Council of Vigo.
