About Us

The Proyecto Estudios Indianos is an interdisciplinary research group on the American viceroyalties with a global perspective. It gathers researchers from 11 countries in America and Europe, dedicated to the study of the impact that the American viceroyalties had in the Modern Era. Its objective is to make visible, on a global scale, the role played by the populations of Latin America in the cultural, political and economic development of modern societies. It also raises new knowledge about the complex relationships woven between Europe and America during the creation of new cultural and political identities through fruitful processes of cultural exchange.

Foundation Obra Pía de los Pizarro

The foundation Obra Pía de los Pizarro is a fruit of a long and industrious process that starts with the Peruvian Conquest and the immediate events, where the Pizarro brothers: Francisco, Hernando, Juan y Gonzalo, play a leading part in the passionate pages of universal history, in which we study the rise and fall of the South American Empire where our main characters suffer a process of transformation , in the Iberian Peninsula, by the Indian fortune and aristocracy status acquired.
