Abstract

So far we have reviewed how an ‘Islamic city’ has been defined; which characteristics or clichés have been attributed to it; how among its attributed features the term labyrinth can be considered as an exclusive concept which embraces all others and at the same time speaks of deeper dimensions; subsequently, what has been thought to be a labyrinth over the course of history, and which patterns and interpretations have been linked to it.
