We are carrying studies on the metal-poor globular clusters of the Galactic bulge. These objects appear to be very old, and might be relics of the first objects in the Galaxy. High resolution observations carried out with VLT-UVES, VLT-FLAMES and Gemini-PHOENIX are presented, and the abundance pattern of these globulars is studied.
