In 2021, Mudejar architecture celebrates a double anniversary in its declaration as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO: 35 years since the recognition of Mudejar architecture of Teruel in 1986, and 20 years since the extension of the international brand to the entire Aragonese territory, with the incorporation of six buildings from the province of Zaragoza in 2001. This extension was key in order to understand the true dimension and significance of Mudejar art in Aragon.

With this in mind, we have started a series of printed trips, with the help of Prames and the magazine La Magia de Viajar por Aragón (The Magic of travelling in Aragón), in which every two months we will travel around the Mudejar heritage in the province of Zaragoza.

The trips will lead us to the month of December, when we will commemorate the twentieth anniversary of the declaration as World Heritage of some of its most outstanding examples.

The first of the articles, available in the January issue of the magazine La Magia de Viajar (The Magic of Travelling), allows us to explain the beauty of a genuine art form. That is to say, why Mudejar art, exclusive to the Iberian Peninsula and an enclave between Islamic and Christian art derived from the conditions of coexistence in medieval Spain, is the most genuine artistic manifestation of Spain and has its greatest exponent in Aragon, a land of frontiers and a melting pot of cultures.
