Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon

Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon: Mudéjar architecture can be found on the Iberian Peninsula. The Mudéjar style is the result from Muslim, Jewish and Christian cultures living side by side. In 711 Arab rulers conquered Spain and remained in control of some parts of Spain for almost 800 years. They brought their culture and exerted a strong influence on Spanish architecture. The Mudéjar Architecture developed from the 12th century until the 16th century. The Mudéjar style is characterised by the use of brick as the main material, adorned with tilework, wood carving, plaster carving and ornamental metals. The Mudéjar style reached his peak in the city of Teruel in Spain. During the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries many Mudéjar style towers and churches were built in Teruel. Other important Mudéjar Architecture can be found in Toledo. The Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon gained the status as an UNESCO World Heritage in 1986.
