This exhibition underlined the relevance and influence of a broad historical heritage shared by Spain and Mexico through the Spanish-American Mudejar Art, consisting of a series of aesthetic forms and practical subjects that were brought to Mexico by the first Spaniards. All these elements have their origin in Spanish-Muslim art and in other European Romanesque and Gothic trends that, merged with local tendencies, resulted in the Latin-American Mudejar art.

All these constituents shape a historical and artistic reality that connects Mexico, Andalusia and Northern Africa, in a clear example of synthesis of cultures, in which the Arab and Christian universes merge together, beyond the Mediterranean and the Atlantic.
