If you say so. I found it after searching for 'baroque architecture' and it has quite a lot of features from baroque style, but whatever.

Late Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto (South-Eastern Sicily)

UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE


Outstanding Baroque Towns of the Val di Noto (South-Eastern Sicily, Italy)

The eight towns in south-eastern Sicily: Caltagirone, Militello Val di Catania, Catania, Modica, Noto, Palazzolo, Ragusa and Scicli, were all rebuilt after 1693 on or beside towns existing at the time of the earthquake which took place in that year. They represent a considerable collective undertaking, successfully carried out at a high level of architectural and artistic achievement. Keeping within the late Baroque style of the day, they also depict distinctive innovations in town planning and urban building.

Justification for Inscription

Criterion 1) This group of towns in south-eastern Sicily provides outstanding testimony to the exuberant genius of late Baroque art and architecture. Criterion 2) The towns of the Val di Noto represent the culmination and final flowering of Baroque art in Europe. Criterion 4) The exceptional quality of the late Baroque art and architecture in the Val di Noto lies in its geographical and chronological homogeneity, as well as its quantity, the result of the 1693 earthquake in this region. Criterion 5) The eight towns of south-eastern Sicily that make up this nomination, which are characteristic of the settlement pattern and urban form of this region, are permanently at risk from earthquakes and eruptions of Mount Etna.

But also many other cities of Sicily, not included in the UNESCO list of the Val di Noto, there are many beautiful examples of Baroque architecture.

There is a thread already: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1206605

Also, the Constanta museum is nowhere near baroque, as it is neo-romanian style from three centuries later.

Rounded arches, ovals, pillars and extravagent ornament makes up this style.

Berlin cathedral is Baroque revival, as anything build in this stile after 1800.
Second one is true baroque church, but its not the palace of justice which is baroque rivival too.

http://http://www.muenchenwiki.de/w/...stizpalast.jpg

The Archaelogical Museum seems to be a Neo- romanesque-byzantine/Jugendstil mix which would be Eklekticism

Baroque revival is allowed because it shares the same traits as original baroque architecture. Hence why it is a 'revival'

Berliner Dom is a mixture between neo-renaissance and neo-baroque. Besides the fact, that it looks a little bit like the building has nothing to do with baroque. That issue shows the problem of this thread. Is it a thread to show some pretty ancient buildings, or did you want to open a thread, which discusses what baroque is and what it isn't?

In the first case, everything should be allowed, what looks nice. In the second case only real baroque buildings and buildings should be shown, which shows the development from renaissance to baroque, and from baroque and rokoko to classicism.

Whatever. Just post whatever you feel is baroque, I guess.

Or don't, since there's apparently another thread of the same thing.

Ok, Picture thread for pretty buildings. Hopefully nobody will post pictures of buildings with baroque balustrades out of plastic. I have already seen several.

That's by no means Baroque! That's more likely Neo-Byzantine.
