The Neo-Mudéjar is a type of revival architecture that appeared in the late 19th century in Madrid, and soon spread to other regions of Spain.
This architectural movement emerged as a revival of the Mudéjar style, a symbiosis of techniques and ways of creating architecture resulting from Christian and Muslim cultures in medieval Spain. In erecting Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance buildings, builders used elements of Islamic art and often achieved striking results. It is characterised by the use of brick as the main material.


The Plaza de España in Seville, built in 1928 for the Ibero-American Exposition of 1929. It is a example of the Regionalism Architecture, mixing elements of the Neo-Mudéjar style.

The Palacete Laredo, in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid), is a palace built as a private dwelling between 1880 and 1884. It is of neo-Mudejar style, with interior decoration in plasterwork and tiles of oriental inspiration, like the minaret with a clock that looks out.

La Adriática building was built in Seville between 1914 and 1922.
Designed by the architect José Espiau y Muñoz, for the insurance company La Adriática, it is a example of eclectic architecture, with forms in which the Neomudéjar style predominates.
Same city, same architect, same period and same style (combination of mudéjar and gothic-plateresque):

This one inspired a (much larger) building in a place as far away as Antofagasta in northern Chile:

Something similar to the Seville mudéjar-rich eclecticism was done by Guerrero Strachan in Málaga, who built the great Casas de Félix Sáez (1922). Two adjacent buildings, one is more properly mudéjar (with foreign influences), the other is essentially plateresque (early Renassaince arch. in Spain) with mudejar elements, like tiles, ceramic roofs and eaves:

The railway station of Toledo is a monumental station work of the architect Narciso Clavería. The construction was carried out between 1916 and 1917. It was restored in 2005 with the arrival of high speed.
Of Neomudéjar style, brick, stone, iron and cement were used for its construction. It has a hall of great ornamental richness that offers a good sample of the Toledo craftsmanship and goldsmithing: mosaics of tiles, lattices, lockers and forged lamps.

Before anybody asks, since there's already a thread on so-called Neo-Moorish architecture here: mudéjar's singularity is that it's the result of the combination of Islamic architectural elements with Western ones (so that for example in this balcony you can actually see gothic tracery at the bottom). However, conventionally, the label might be broadened to encompass neo-Moorish architecture, but such style isn't neomudejar sensu stricto. The boundary is of course a very blurry one.

One of my favourite buildings in this style is Plaza de Armas train station in Seville (1899). One of the two old train stations in the city, nowadays turned into a mall.

The historical building of the University of Barcelona was built between 1863 and 1889.
Hall of Degrees or Paraninfo is a space for the most important academic events. Neomudèjar style elements are present in all points of space; the coffered ceiling, the polychrome plaster on the walls, etc. The Pafaninfo was just built in 1884, the last intervention is the placement of the six history tables, related to research, higher education and university in the Hispanic kingdoms (understood as a unit), which decorate the time project and reinforce the ideas of this.
