Whether fact or fiction, what is true is that Spain and Ireland have maintained a series of connections throughout the ages, about which little is known today.

This month the library invites you to explore the origins of these connections dating back thousands of years.

Come and discover the traces of the Celtic civilisations which shaped the evolution of both countries, and in doing so, understand a little bit better who we are today.
