Mudejar Architecture of Aragon is a World Heritage Site in the autonomous community of Aragon in Spain.

The Mudéjar architectural style developed in the Aragon region of Spain between the 12th and 17th century, resulting in hundreds of buildings that is found today in the valleys of the Ebra, Jalón and Jiloca rivers. The people there are known as Mudejar. The population were of Muslim origin, but many were nominally Christian.

The Mudejar Architecture of Aragon reflects the Islamic influences to the various European architectural styles, particularly the Gothic. The Mudejar style exhibits inventiveness in the use of brick and glazed tiles in architecture, especially where employed in the belfries.
