We love Moorish architecture and wish it was copied more often.

There is a beachfront mansion called Casa Marrakech about a block down the street from our condo on Playa Langosta in Tamarindo that adapts Moroccan/Moorish architecture for use as a beach house. It is spectacular. It was designed by Abraham Valenzuela, the same Costa Rican architect who designed our two condos.

This is a beautiful and well-designed courtyard.

This is just beautiful. I thought for a moment you were showing us something from Morocco.

How utterly lovely and peaceful! The Moors certainly knew how to build.

Parece un patio árabe. Estupendo encuadre!!

To me this looks a bit like Arabian style.
Pretty no matter what the style is called.

Another gorgeous place, perfectly framed.

Wow, that is such an exquisite design. The palm trees are the perfect accent. And the way you composed and framed your shot works beautifully.
