Group of Mozarabic buildings on the Iberian Peninsula (Spain & Portugal)
Mozarabic art developed in the Iberian Peninsula between the late 8th century/early 9thcentury and the mid-11th century as a result of the convergence and hybridisation of various cultural traditions. Architecture, sculpture and items of furniture form part of an exceptional whole based on their monumental nature, their conservation status and uniqueness.
The Mozarabic is a unique art, eclectic in nature, a product of the syncretism of different sources, taking place in a specific time and geographical setting, based on the exceptional development of events in Iberia in the early Middle Ages. It is thus a direct reflection of the combination of the local tradition and the foreign innovation that arrived on Iberian shores along with the Muslim population in 711.
