Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon

Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1986

 

The particular socio-political and cultural context of Spain after the Reconquest made possible the appearance of Mudéjar Art in Aragon. The Mudéjar architecture developed in this area, of which an extraordinary legacy is fortunately preserved, has very special characteristics; influenced in part by Islamic art, and with traces of European contemporary styles, such as the Gothic. The UNESCO World Heritage classification of this architectural style includes the construction methods, the materials used, and the decorative elements applied, among others.

 

The scope of protection includes ten monuments in the provinces of Teruel and Zaragoza, both religious and secular. Among them is the tower and the parish church of San Pablo de Zaragoza, inside of which Kalam has been present restoring its magnificent altarpiece, reconstructing and assembling the sixteenth-century stretchers as well as its oil and grisaille paintings that decorate the front and back. Also, in this church, Kalam has worked to restore the decoration of the isodomum ashlar masonry facing that covers its interior walls, and the delicate plasterwork of its vault ribs. Both projects were successfully completed with the knowledge and accumulated experience of our professionals, ensuring the principles of good practices on monuments with protected and recognized architectural and artistic styles, such as this one.
