Spain is, together with Italy, one of the most representative countries of Baroque clearly. In Seville (my home city) there are a lot of examples of Baroque architecture. Here i show you some of them:

Saint Louis Church











Saint Joseph Church



Santa María Magdalena Church







Iglesia de los Venerables Sacerdotes





Montpensier´s Palace

Designed with the help of the French and Italian Jesuits in the Chinese Imperial Court: the old baroque palace of Yuan Ming Yuan (summer palace of the Qing Emperors) near Peking.

Destroyed by British and French troops in 1860.

What makes this baroque and not neoclassical?

I'm not a big fan of Baroque myself. It's too busy. It's often used to disguise poor architecture.

Admirality Arch is an example of Edwardian Baroque which was popular in the Edwardian era.. I don't know if this makes it neoclassical. Also, I get that you're not a big fan of Baroque but I'm also interested to know what your background is that you have learnt that baroque is used to disguise poor architecture?

Love the Seville photos btw.

The building in Brisbane and Admirality Arch (built 1910) aren't baroque. They are neoclassicist.
Time frame of Baroque Wiki quote:
"Baroque is an artistic style prevalent from the late 16th century to the early 18th century in Europe."

This needs some clarification. The so-called "Edwardian Baroque" is actually derived from French Classicism -- the so-called "Baroque" style of Louis XIV.

The French do NOT like the term "Baroque" to describe this style, because they have always claimed that the style is rooted in the Antique Roman classicism.

Neoclassicism, in contrast, derives from Europe's first hand experience of classical architecture in GREECE as opposed to the classicism of Roman ITALY at the end of the 18th century. Think Winkelmann...

The details in the Brisbane building and the Admirality Arch mark it as NOT exactly neoclassical. The same holds for St. Paul's Cathedral in London, and Versailles and the Louvre in France. They derive from the cooler, more "correct" form of French Baroque, as opposed to that of Italy, Southern Germany and Austria.

Tinjan, Istria - the parish church of Sts. Simon and Jude Thaddaeus
The church was built in the mid-18th century in late baroque style.
