Andalusí art

Seven centuries of Muslim presence in Spain (711-1492). A distinctive ingredient which was to give our culture its distinctive flavour. At the westernmost part of the land of al-Andalus, Islam enjoyed its period of greatest cultural splendour. Cordoba had the largest population of any city in Europe at that time. The sumptuousness of the court of the Andalusi caliphate was legendary all over Christian Europe. Everything from its language to its art and literature, from its farming techniques to its crafts, its carpets… the stamp of Islam would be handed down to us through the centuries to the present day.
