Abstract La Santa y Real Hermandad del Refugio y Piedad (Hermandad del Rufugio) was the major charitable organization of Spain for 200 years beginning in the seventeenth century.

The work of the brotherhood was divided among La Vista, which distributed funds to the poor and the sick; Las Sillas, an ambulance service; and La Ronda, a night patrol which attempted to find and take in the destitute to prevent illness or death from exposure. The collection is a logbook kept by La Ronda, the night patrol of La Santa y Real Hermandad, in Zaragoza, Spain, northwest of Madrid. Entries describe activities for specific dates, including individuals found and aided, money raised, and other matters, such as dealings with Las Sillas.
