Romanesque

The first artistic style which was common to all of Christian Europe assumed particular relevance in Spain, and evolved its own distinctive personality. Throughout the Middle Ages, the increasing awareness of a collective Christian spirituality and the momentum created by the pilgrimages encouraged the spread of the first artistic forms which were common to all of Europe. Between the 10th and 13th centuries, the influence of new techniques in architecture, sculpture and painting permeated the Christian kingdoms of Iberia, essentially along the Way of Saint James, and were enriched by the existing tradition, and particularly by the all-encompassing presence of Muslim art from the territories of al-Andalus.
