SAN MIGUEL DE ESCALADA, LEÓN, CASTILE AND LEÓN, SPAIN

San Miguel de Escalada was a monastery located near the town of the same name, in the municipality of Gradefes, province of León. It is located on the Camino de Santiago, 27 km from the city of León. Currently, only the temple remains of the monastery. The monastery was consecrated in 913 by Abbot Alfonso, who had arrived in León with other monks from Córdoba.

Mozarabic work for some authors, would be included within the so-called art of repopulation. The Mozarabic temple was built reusing materials from previous times, Visigothic and Roman. It has the category of National Monument since 1886.

CHURCH OF SANTA MARÍA DE MELQUE, SAN MARTÍN DE MONTALBAN, TOLEDO, CASTILE-LA MANCHA, SPAIN

There was originally a Roman settlement at the location, with five dams across the two brooks that surround a small, rocky hill. Santa María de Melque came into being as a monastic collection inside the Catholic Kingdom of Toledo. Construction commenced in the 7th century, coinciding with the end of the Visigothic kingdom. It has been argued that construction came to a halt with the arrival of the Arabs, to be continued later, although there is a counter-argument that the architecture shows Syrian influence (specifically Syro-Umayyad). It appears that there was an Islamic settlement at Melque in the 8th century.

With the conquest of Toledo by King Alfonso VI of León and Castile in 1085, the temple recovered its liturgical function without losing its military function. The anthropomorphic tombs located to the east and the remains of barbicans are testimonies of this historic period.

HERMITAGE OF SAN PANTALEON DE LOSA, VALLE DE LOSA, BURGOS, CASTILE AND LEON, SPAIN
Hermitage made up of two naves, one Romanesque and the other Gothic. The Romanesque hermitage has a semicircular apse in this style, with columns with buttresses with capitals and an oven vault. Half window, three archivolts with capitals and columns, geometric and vegetal decoration. dogs with different decoration. The first section with a vault on pendentives, cover at the foot, with three archivolts slightly pointed with Atlantean figures as a caryatid, capitals and columns with very rich and diverse decoration; two other windows with two archivolts, columns and capitals that correspond to other similar ones in the interior.
During the time of the Crusades, tradition placed the Holy Grail in Mont-Salvat, in the north of Spain, the current Sierra Salvada, which closes the Losa valley in the north. Three possible locations: San Pantaleón de Losa, Vallejo and Santa María de Siones.
Just five kilometers from this enigmatic hermitage is the small village of Criales de Losa, whose name evokes the root "grail". It is assured that, in past times, the place was called "Grails", although there is no documentary evidence. In any case, the geographical proximity of a mountain range, La Salvada, and a village, Criales, which allude so directly to the legend of the Holy Chalice, is still surprising. There is no other town or place in Spain that accumulates such suggestive names

SAN BAUDELIO DE BERLANGA HERMITAGE, SORIA, CASTILE AND LEON, SPAIN

The Hermitage of San Baudelio de Berlanga (is an early 11th-century church at Caltojar in the province of Soria, Castile and León, Spain). It is an important example of Mozarabic architecture for its peculiarities, in what was then the frontier between Islamic and Christian lands. It is dedicated to Saint Baudilus or Baudel.

No records provide evidence of the construction of the church, but it is apparent that it belongs to the group of Mozarabic churches built throughout northern Spain during the tenth and eleventh centuries. San Baudelio sets itself apart from the rest of the architecture in the Castile region because it is an uncommon example of the Mozarabic style, rather than the much more numerous examples of Moorish influenced architecture from Andalusia, which are found farther west in León
