A style can be emulated in recent times. Just like the Greek Clasical is obviously not from 200 BC. Whashington DC is of course has that style, so too can Renaissance.

Alright, let's look at some Spanish Colonial churches from El Salvador.

ok, you all are right, sorry, I forget to pay attention to the dates

and the same problem happens at the first post, where he explains that it is to show the neoclassic and renaissance but the in the examples, he just forgot to put that the pictures were from neo-classical buildings also

That examples from América and Phillipines are spanish architecture but with a very strong influence of their own cultures, i've always loved Miagao.

The city itself is a UNESCO heritage site. The main church in the city (I forgot the name) has still some of its "stone tablets" written in Spanish.

..... Just some of the many examples of Spanish Colonial architecture in Cuba... the country is literally covered in Spanish architecture, and spanish-derived styles from coast to coast. Huge swathes of major, medium, and minor Cuban cities are packed-full of colonial architecture.

I could continue posting pictures and never end. This is in part because Cuba was one of the very last countries, if not the last, that Spain lost in the Americas as a consequence of independence movements and other wars (such as the Spanish-American war). Cuba's heritage is heavily characterized by its Spanish ancestry.

Cuba is our sister nation with beautiful examples too. Philippines has also great colonial architecture. Mexico: great, exhuberant, vibrant architecture.
