SANTA MARÍA DE MIXÓS

Mozarabic - 10th Century - Orense

Although at present it has a single nave, originally it had three, separated by horseshoe arches and flat covering. It still has three apses with entrance arches and horseshoe shaped plan, covered with semi dome vaults in brick, inscribed in a flat chevet from which the central apse protrudes slightly. From all the basilics built in the 10th century and considered as Mozarabic, this one is the less Islamic.

Santa María de Peñalba

Mozarabic - 10th Century - La Rioja

Iglesia de nave cuadrada, con dos cabeceras. La nave está cubierta por una única bóveda soportada por cuatro arcos en cruz que se apoyan sobre un un pilar central, al estilo de San Baudelio de Berlanga. El edificio nos ha llegado muy modificado, pero aún se conservan dos arcos con sus respectivos alfizes en uno de sus muros.

Santa María de Retortillo

Mozarabic - 10th Century - Burgos

This small church is found at 2 Km from Valeránica. It was restored by Luis Menéndez Pidal. It still keeps part of the Mozarabic chevet with an interesting horseshoe arch and a decoration set in the same style, that includes a modillion and several blocks sculptured with compositions in Oriental motifs, like the fight of a lamb and a snake or two deers confronted around a treel.

SANTA MARÍA DE WAMBA

Mozarabic - 10th Century - Valladolid

Located where Wamba was anointed king, it was built in the first half of the 10th century upon the remains of a Visigothic church, of which fragments of the decoration have been preserved. From the Mozarabic period, only the chevet has been preserved, with three apses covered with a horseshoe vault, the continuation of magnificent access arches, the last two sections of the naves and the northern wall; the rest corresponds to a reconstruction in the 12th century.

SANTO TOMAS DE LAS OLLAS

Mozarabic - 10th Century - León

This small church is located at the entrance of Ponferrada. It has a single nave with a magnificent oval apse that consists of nine horseshoe arches attached to the wall, upon columns and capitals with access through a triumphal arch, also horseshoe, covered with a magnificent groin vault of eleven edges that lean upon the centre of each arch dividing it in other eleven segments of clear Cordovan descent.

TORREON DE DOÑA URRACA

Mozarabic, Castles - 10th Century - Burgos

This tower is located in Covarrubias. It is the only military stronghold preserved from that period. It is so called after Doña Urraca, grand daughter of Fernán González, who was sovereign abbess of the Monastery of St. Cosme and St. Damián in Covarrubias. Formed by three bodies, the first one possibly of Roman origin, with walls up to 3 m wide. The second one has a horseshoe door at many metres from the floor, and the last one, rebuilt in a later period, with windows and buttresses.
