Moorish/Morisco architecture in America

I created this thread to find and join all moorish/morisco architecture in America.

In Brazil, I only know three buildings:
1) Rio de Janeiro - The Castle of the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation
2) Rio de Janeiro - Basilica of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
3) Salvador da Bahia - Lapinha Church.

The Church of Lapinha is full of misteries. It's completely toward to Mecca and some say it was a mosque someday! Outside, half of the church is by portuguese colonial and half neogothic architectures. The malê people could have built it, too

Enjoy.
