One of prominent features of Moroccan architecture is the use of horseshoe arches. This style is also known as the keyhole arch, for obvious reasons, as well as the Moorish Arch. This style was used in Spain before the Moorish invasion. The style was taken back and saw it resurface with the Moorish Revival.
