The oriental influence in Spain and Portugal has left a legacy of extraordinary architecture, celebrated by scholars, poets and artists. In this lavishly illustrated book, Miles Danby reveals the multi-layered cultural interactions which took place, and which have in turn provided inspiration for architects through the centuries and around the world. By looking at architecture across the whole Iberian peninsula, Miles Danby has created a study of the oriental style which is unprecedented in both its geographical and historical scope. This book will be essential reading for architects, designers and historians, and for anyone with an appreciation of one of the finest and richest architectural legacies in the world.
