The digital munya project is is an ongoing multidisciplinary effort to visualize this important medieval building type, its landscape setting, and its interior decoration. We are developing a fully navigable 3-D model, which uses a gaming platform to provide scholars and students with a new tool for creative visualization and analysis.

Our visualization combines elements from two archaeological sites near present-day Córdoba: al-Rummaniyya and the palace city of Madinat al-Zahra’. Our aim is not to provide accurate archaeological reconstructions of either site, but to creatively suggest visual possibilities of vanished munya spaces.
