Abstract: The production of {\Xi}- and {\Omega}- baryons and their anti-particles in Pb-Pb collisions at $\sqrt{s_{NN}}$ = 2.76 TeV has been measured using the ALICE detector. The transverse momentum spectra at mid-rapidity (|y| < 0.5) for charged {\Xi} and {\Omega} hyperons have been studied in the range 0.6 < $p_{\rm T}$ < 8.0 GeV/$c$ and 1.2 < $p_{\rm T}$ < 7.0 GeV/$c$, respectively, and in several centrality intervals (from the most central 0-10% to the most peripheral 60-80% collisions). These spectra have been compared with the predictions of recent hydrodynamic models. In particular, the Krak${\'o}$w and EPOS models give a satisfactory description of the data, with the latter covering a wider $p_{\rm T}$ range. Mid-rapidity yields, integrated over $p_{\rm T}$, have been determined. The hyperon-to-pion ratios are similar to those at RHIC: they rise smoothly with centrality up to $<N_{part}>$ ~ 150 and saturate thereafter. The enhancements (yields per participant nucleon relative to p-p collisions) increase both with the strangeness content of the baryon and with centrality, but are less pronounced than at lower energies.
