The Moors were the Muslim inhabitants who lived on the Iberian Peninsula, the Mahgreb and West Africa in the Middle Ages. In Europe, the word is very often used to talk about people whose ancestors were African.

There were Black African and Arab moors from North Africa. Many of them came to what is now Spain and Portugal. They had a very big influence on the culture of these countries.

The Moors were the ones who captured Al Andalus and named it Al Andalus, Which means land of the vandals.
