Organised by: Regional Government of Castile-León and Fundação Côa Parque as part of the PALEOARTE project, financed by the INTERREG Spain-Portugal programme of the European Regional Development Fund

En torno a las columnas de Hércules. Las relaciones milenarias entre Marruecos y España

Around the Pillars of Hercules: The Age-Old Ties between Morocco and Spain

25 May–16 October 2022

Under the distinguished patronage of HM Felipe VI, King of Spain, and HM Mohammed VI, King of Morocco

Organised by: Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sport (MCD), Museo Arqueológico Nacional (MAN), Acción Cultural Española (AC/E) and Fondation Nationale des Musées du Royaume du Maroc (FNM)

The central theme of this exhibition is the mutual acknowledgement of the neighbourly relations that have linked Morocco and Spain throughout history. Contact between people on either side of the Strait of Gibraltar—a place the ancients called the Pillars of Hercules, where the known world ended—has always been marked by productive cultural exchange more than politics.

Tesoros arqueológicos de Rumanía. Las raíces dacias y romanas

Archaeological Treasures from Romania: Dacian and Roman Roots

1 October 2021–27 February 2022

Under the distinguished patronage of: H.M. Felipe VI, King of Spain, and H.E. Klaus Werner Iohannis, President of Romania

Organised by: Romanian Ministry of Culture, Muzeul Național de Istorie a României, Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sport and Museo Arqueológico Nacional

Curators: Ernest Oberländer-Târnoveanu and Andrés Carretero Pérez

The exhibition features nearly 800 cultural assets from 40 different Romanian museums. It aims to trace the historical evolution of the territory of Romania over more than a thousand years, from the late Hallstatt and Scythian cultures to the invasions of the Germanic peoples, with a particular emphasis on the period when Dacia was a Roman province, after the Dacian Wars fought by Emperor Trajan. The show also highlights the historical connections between Romania and Spain via the Celts and Romans.
