’Mudejar decoration in Coca Castle.’
The interior of Coca Castle (Segovia province) retains some elements of Mudejar decoration in one of its corner turrets. The castle was built in the second half of the 15th century by Alonso de Fonseca, the powerful archbishop of Seville and bishop of Ávila. It is a beautiful example of the so-called Mudejar style: a mixture of Moorish and Christian style elements. The fortress is brick-built because this was the principal material used by the Moorish master builders. Photo Mick Palarczyk.
