Dear Colleagues,

I am grateful for the opportunity to guest edit, for the second time, this Special Issue of Arts devoted to “Andalusi Architecture: Shapes, Meaning and Influences” (Vol. 2), the goal of which is to gather knowledge regarding Andalusi art and inspire readers to learn more about it. Indeed, the importance of Andalusi art in its developmental stage and in the evolution of Hispanic architecture is undeniable. At present, a large group of monuments and archaeological remains continue to remind us of that great period of history in the Iberian Peninsula (from the 8th to the 15th century). Accordingly, and in consequence, a few years ago, Arts published a Special Issue titled “Andalusi Architecture: Shapes, Meaning and Influences” to highlight the importance of Andalusi art in the scientific community, and numerous prominent international specialists participated. The importance of this publication lies in the dissemination of artistic elements of Andalusian art, not only during the 8th and 15th centuries, but also in later centuries as a reminder of their influence.

In this sense, it is fundamental to continue with the study of new perspectives and theoretical–practical concepts on Andalusian architecture in general. It is important to analyze and assess the relations of al-Andalus with other geographical entities, including Christian ones—this will be reflected in its artistic enrichment but also in creating its own identity. For this reason, new theoretical approaches, archaeological findings, and historiographical reviews deserve their own space, and it is because of this that this new Arts volume has been proposed, with a fundamental idea: to value Andalusian architecture and its repercussions today.
