The Provincial Historical Archive of Ourense is the depository for the historical documents which make it possible to reconstruct of the history of Ourense. Since 1964 it has been housed in the former Episcopal Palace.

The area of Ourense was well known in Europe in the Middle Ages due to the wines produced in the Ribeiro region. This wine-growing activity to a great extent underpinned the local economy and the human communities which became established throughout the territory. The collections in the Provincial Historical Archive of Ourense are essential for an understanding of the society of peasants, monks and noblemen which grew up around the Ribeiro wine industry.
