Since their introduction, Shimura varieties have proven to be important landmarks sitting right at the crossroads between algebraic geometry, number theory and representation theory.

In this talk, starting from the yoga of motives and Hodge theory, we will try to motivate Deligne’s construction of Shimura varieties, and briefly survey some of their zoology and properties. I may also say something about the links to automorphic forms, or their integral canonical models.
