A common mistake.

It's interesting that the thread as usual has become a thread about showing off one's country bombarding us with an overkill of pictures.

St. Peter is not a church-cathedral.

The cathedra of bishop of rome is in st. johan in lateran.

St. peter is one of four papal major basiliche.

Clearly, in many cases, baroque is more a internal decoration style than an strictly architectural one. It also follows very closely the catholic church and the monarchy for many obvious reasons. Having said that, there is almost none in countries that neither existed (EE, Greece etc)

Early in their careers they had all worked at the same time at the Palazzo Barberini, initially under Carlo Maderno and on his death, under Bernini. Later on, however, they were in competition for commissions and fierce rivalries developed, particularly between Bernini and Borromini.[3] Despite the arguably greater architectural inventiveness of Borromini and Cortona, Bernini’s artistic pre-eminence, particularly during the reigns of popes Urban VIII (1623–44) and Alexander VII (1655–1665), meant he was able to secure the most important commission in Rome of the day, St. Peter's Basilica. His design of the Piazza San Pietro in front of the Basilica is one of his most innovative and successful architectural designs.

Completely agree with your second sentence. In my case I've only posted twice with photos. This is not the case with other ...

The original project by Juvarra was modified by Giovanni Battista Sacchetti.
Many historians consider the Palacio Real as a neoclassical Residence.

The Royal Palace of Madrid and the interventions of Paseo del Prado (Salón del Prado and Alcalá Doorgate) in the same city, deserve special mention. They were constructed in a sober Baroque international style, often mistaken for neoclassical, by the kings Philip V and Charles III.
I say, even if this palace sas built in the late baroque period, it seems to me more neoclassical than baroque.

In fact the style of Bernini was considered as "classicism" and only in part "baroque", instead of Borromini, that was an innovator. Even if Bernini was a great architect too.

This facade will become the model of many baroque churches. But I consider it as a mix of classicism, mannerism that lead to early baroque.

As always in all the thread. Even if I posted also pictures from Paris.
But I am surely more expert about my country's architecture.

It is always good to talk about what you know. Maybe you should talk a little less of Spanish architecture because of your prejudices.

More common than you can imagine. Also my tourist guide say it has a neoclassical aspect, as it clearly is.

Anyway, neoclassical is not a bad word.

http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arquitectura_del_Barroco

Difusión de la arquitectura barroca en el siglo XVII

En la España peninsular, la afirmación del Barroco se encontró con las dificultades debidas a la decadencia económica del reinado de Felipe III. En la segunda mitad del siglo XVI, Felipe II había mandado construir el importante complejo del Monasterio de El Escorial, construido en su mayor parte según el proyecto de Juan de Herrera (1530-1597). A Herrera se debe también el proyecto de la Catedral de Valladolid, en el que se refuerza el concepto del eje central y que sirvió de modelo para la Catedral de México.
Progresivamente, la arquitectura española del siglo XVII fue evolucionando hacia el estilo barroco, aunque no dejó grandes ejemplos significativos. La mayor parte de las influencias barrocas fueron recogidas de forma exclusivamente decorativa, especialmente en las iglesias. Este lenguaje, que resultaba rápidamente comprensible incluso para el segmento de la población menos instruido, fue exportado con éxito a las colonias americanas.


As I said.
