Abstract: The city of Belém, capital of the Brazilian state of Pará, a four hundred years old city, is considered rich with history and cultural diversity. Amongst its historical constructions, the Library “Arquivo Público” – Public Archives – stands out for its great importance, not only for its own history and architecture, but also for keeping very relevant documents in its collection. Among the archives, the oldest document is dated from 1649, close to the year of the city’s foundation. However, until the beginning of 2014, the building was in a dreadful preservation state. Aiming the conservation of the city’s historic and cultural heritage, the renovation of the building was initiated, focusing especially on the restoration of the original architectural pieces, preserving the artistic heritage of the construction. This paper aims to analyze the pathologies found on site and evaluate the restoration process of this historical building, to verify the repair procedures made and to present the results of the construction work.
