Hispano-Moresque. Architectural style based upon that of Moorish buildings in the Iberian peninsula from C8 to C15. Earlier work was contemporary with Romanesque and was called Mozarabic. Later architecture infused with Gothic is known as Mudéjar. The Alhambra, Granada (mostly 1338–90), is a fine example of the style, which was revived elsewhere in Europe in C19 and C20, often for synagogues. It was also an ingredient of Catalan Modernisme.
