Where we come from

The origins of our institution, which is a pioneer in Spain in the conservation-restoration field, are found in what was formerly known as the Central Institute of Restoration and Conservation of Works and Objects of Art, Archaeology and Ethnology (now the Spanish Cultural Heritage Institute). After breaking away from that Centre, in 1977, it fell under the Ministry of Education (rather than the Ministry of Culture, which had been the case up to that time).
