" The stamp of the East on our culture. Throughout the Middle Ages, Islam and its believers exerted a far-reaching influence over Spain’s civilisation and art."

The presence of everything Muslim in our territory for eight centuries –from the 8th to the 15th– most deeply affected what today we call Andalusia, a term derived from the Arabic name, al-Ándalus, given at that time to the lands in Spain under Muslim domination. Its main cities were the sumptuous Cordoba, the capital of the Caliphate; splendid Granada, the home of the Nasrid Kings; and Seville with its Giralda and the Golden Tower. However, its influence spread throughout practically the whole of what is today the territory of Spain, and also suffused all aspects of society: everything from the language through to the customs; from music and art to intellectual thought. Horseshoe arches and non-figurative decoration are two of its most relevant architectural and sculptural elements.
