The Kingdom of Granada
ITINERARY 1: from Malaga to Ronda.
ITINERARY 2: La Axarquia.
Land of to day's province of Malaga, save for the area of Antequera, was conquered by the Ferdinand and Isabella at the end of the 15th century and the first parishes in the see of Malaga were not created until 1505. Here the influence is of the valley of the Guadalquivir -ribbed apses- whereas in the remaining lands of the Kingdom of Granada, rib vaulting predominate. At Malaga, Mudejar is associated with Gothic in the church of Santiago, and with the renaissance in the convent of La victoria, La Trinidad barracks and palace of Los Condes de Buenavista, the museum of Bellas Artes has remains of the Hospital of Santo Tomas.
The itinerary towards the hills of Ronda would include the Gothic- Mudejar parishes of Caratama, Ardales, El Burgo and Parauta and the old Hospital of San Juan de Dios and Bazan at Marbella and San Andres at Coin. Ronda is certainly worth stopping at, to see the churches of El Espiritu Santo and Nuestra Señora de Gracia and the Convents of Santo Domingo and San Francisco, the school of San Jose de la Montaña and the palace of Mondragon. Another itinerary of Mudejar churches can be followed in the Axarquia, whose towers in many cases are the old minarets: Almanchar, El Borge, Cutar, Comares, Benamargosa, Benamocarra, Canillas del Aceituno, Salares, Arenas de Velez, Daimalos, Archez and Corumbela. The centre of this itinerary is Velez Malaga- church of Santa Maria and Mudejar details in the convents of San Francisco and Santa Cruz.
