Moorish Spain owes its legacy of the 7 centuries of Muslim occupation of Spain. It is often held up as the brilliant example of Islamic civilization, the Golden Age of Islam, the beauty of multi-culture. But the truth is that the sights of this era are very few.
The invasion came in 711, and not it was first in 1492 that the Iberian peninsula was liberated. The culture brought to Christian Spain introduced new styles and customs, and much more saw its birth here over the centuries.
