A map illustrating the scope and organization of the Roman provinces in Hispania (present-day Spain and Portugal.) Roman Spain was one of the first provinces beyond Italy; it took two centuries to conquer fully (starting with an invasion against the Carthaginians in 206 BCE) and remained under Roman rule far longer than most of the Western Empire (northeastern Spain was still under nominal Roman control c. 474 CE.) Hispania was among the wealthiest and most Romanized of the empire’s provinces for over 500 years.
