for The-s:
Palazzo Rufolo, Ravello (NAPLES)


The Cathedral of Amalfi (curious mix: the façade is neo-moorish built in the XIX century, the belltower and the cloister are original from the 1100 with islamic tiles and elements)

"Well there's plenty of people who like the Hassan II mosque, i guess it's a matter of taste"


Absolutely! It is undoubtely jawdropping in terms of overall design, details, materials...then I can't really judge since I didn't have the chance to visit it when I was in Morocco, so...maybe the overall impression of coldness it's due to the pics as well...

Can the immense ABU DHABI new mosque be considered "neo-moorish"? Really, from the outside it looks like a gigantic version of the parisian Le Sacrè Coeur church on the hill of Montmartre!






there's a strange absence of muqarnas here...

Yes, this is what I thought! It is, again, a strange mixture of more north african islamic style (especially the white colonnades) and some moorish stuff...just bizarre!

Palacete Ribeiro da Cunha

Neo-Moorish



"The Palacete Ribeiro da Cunha is a city palace in the center of the Portuguese capital Lisbon .

It was designed by the architect in 1877 Afonso Henrique Carlos on the north side of the Praça do Príncipe Real built. The client was from the Minho coming tobacconist José Ribeiro da Cunha. The pseudo-Moorish building is lavishly decorated with oriental ornaments. Belonging is a 3000 m² garden.
In 1901, the palace was sold to the Seixas family who lived two decades there. 1920 earned the doctor Manuel Caroca the building and left him to his daughter and heiress. Through marriage, the house came into the possession of the doctor Lopo de Carvalho. In 1980, the Universidade Nova de Lisboa as a part of administrative buildings, but the family remained until the mid-1990s on the top floor living.

In 2013 and after years of vacancy, the building was converted into a comercial space "

Mughal, Egyptian, and Moorish seem to be the main inspirations - Mughal in terms of its appearance from a distance (particularly its arrangement of domes and minarets) and use of mitred and inlaid marble; and Egyptian and Moorish in many of the details and interiors.

Thanks Well, there are very few examples of neo-moorish architecture from Austrian-Hungarian period in Croatia. There's this one in Split and three or four other buildings in Rijeka and Osijek, maybe one or two in Zagreb (as far as I know).

In neighboring Bosnia there are far grander and more numerous examples of this style (like Sarajevo city hall), as such buildings fit better with country's overall architecture from Ottoman period.

EDIT: here's the link to the thread about Neo-Moorish architecture in Bosnia.
