Record of the agreement between Columbus and the Catholic monarchs regarding the project to find a new western route towards the East Indies.

It takes its name from the town of Santa Fe, on the Granada river plain, the site where the encampment was established for the final attack on the Nasrid capital. Although subsequently the discovery and settlement was organised by the Crown of Castile, the Aragonese Chancery, due to its greater administrative and archival tradition, was responsible for recording and archiving the first document regarding the discovery of America.

The record is divided into chapters.
