This library originated during the sale of church lands by Mendizábal between 1835 and 1836, in order to safeguard the collections from the affected convents.

Its catalogue includes a range of outstanding items and comprises several different collections. These include the Antique Collection with manuscripts, incunabula, and printed works from the 16th century to 1958; the Ramón Llull Section, with works by Ramón Llull himself, and studies on his life and work.
