" Muslims in the land of the infidels. The art of al-Ándalus impregnates the Christian Hispanic kingdoms."

Despite the apparent religious and political separation between Christians and Muslims in the Spanish Middle Ages, the relationship between both these groups was far more fruitful than what might at first be imagined. The moving frontiers did not presuppose the immediate emigration of one or other group of inhabitants. A good example of this is the Mudéjars, the name given to Muslims whose lands or properties had fallen under Christian domination. Architects, craftsmen and decorators continued to work in the construction of Christian churches and buildings, and their techniques and aesthetic features influenced their Christian colleagues. Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance buildings were enriched with the contributions of Andalusí traditions, particularly in Aragon, in some areas of Castile-León and in the urban centres of Toledo and Seville.
