Hispania: The Romans in Spain

Instituto Cervantes Dublin
18:00 - 19:00
Booking required
All Ages


The Instituto Cervantes Dublin has prepared a vibrant programme open to all audiences and ages to enjoy Spanish culture in Ireland.

Historian Michael B. Barry will tell the fascinating story of the six centuries of Rome’s presence in the Iberian Peninsula. From the start of the Roman era in Iberia in 218 BC, to the fifth century when legionaries landed just south of the Pyrenees to the end of Hispania, all through the several centuries needed to conquer Hispania. Barry will also talk about the impressive Roman remains to be seen all over Spain and Portugal, including the great aqueduct in Segovia and the theatre in Mérida.

Michael B. Barry studied in Trinity College and lives in Dublin. He has written many books, some about Spanish history: Homage to Al-Andalus, The Rise and Fall of Islamic Spain and Hispania, The Romans in Spain and Portugal.

Capacity: 30 people.
