Spanish Head of Department in Law. Sanromá graduated in Letters in 1846 and in Law in 1850 from the University of Barcelona. He got married with Irene Ynglada i Aleu. He belonged to a distinguished family of lawyers.

In 1854, Sanromá obtained the chair in Political Economy, Political Law and Administration of the Faculty of Philosophy, from the University of Santiago de Compostela. The Moyano Law of 1857 abolished this section, so he was sent to the Chair of Political Economy and Statistics, Elements of Political and Administrative Law in the Faculty of Law at the University of Santiago de Compostela.

From 1858 to 1871, Sanromá was appointed head of department of General History of Commerce and Elements of International Commercial Law, at the Superior School of Commerce in Madrid. In 1864, he taught Political Economy and Legislation at the Royal Industrial Institute of Madrid.

In 1871, Sanromá was on extended leave of absence when he was appointed Deputy at the Courts. After finishing his phase as a deputy in 1874, he returned to his chair in the School of Commerce of Madrid until his retirement in 1888. During this period, his chair was considered as an university one and was recognized as head of department of the University of Madrid, because he had been head of department at the Faculty of Law of the University of Santiago de Compostela for three years.

Sanromá held some other positions, such as distinguished lawyer at the School of Lawyers of Barcelona, Secretary of the Free Society of Political Economy, member-founder of the Spanish Abolitionist Association, being its vice-president and president, Member of the Administration Board of the Association for the Progress of the Social Sciences, undersecretary of the Minister of Treasury in 1869, deputy for the province of Puerto Rico (1871-1874), director of the School of Commerce of Madrid, from 1886 to 1887, Minister of State and Public Instruction, member of the Royal Academy of Moral and Political Sciences, president of the Scientific Society Reunión Literaria, co-founder of La Gaceta Economista, editor of the magazine Crónica de Ambos Mundos, and member of the Association for the reform of the customs tariff.
