Schloss Ahrensburg

Schloss Ahrensburg, or Ahrensburg Palace, is located near the city of Hamburg in Germany. It was built in 1585 by Peter Rantzau who had inherited the land from his brother, Daniel. He in turn had recieved it as a gift by the danish king for his service in The Northern Seven Years' War. Ahrensburg is a representative of the short-lived Mehrfachhaus-type of Renaissance mansion, in which a rectangular building was doubled or trebled. The four corner turrets as well as the white paint was added later, the building would have originally featured unplastered brick walls with sandstone ornaments.

Villa d'Este

Villa d'Este is a 16th-century villa in Tivoli, near Rome, famous for its terraced hillside Italian Renaissance garden and especially for its profusion of fountains. It was built between 1550 and 1572 by cardinal Ippolito II d'Este, a man of extravagance and a patron of the arts. Alberto Galvani was responsible for designing the building, while the interior was decorated by the painter Livio Agresti. The famous garden was made by Pirro Ligorio with help from Thomaso Chiruchi with the fountains.

Wollaton Hall

Wollaton Hall is an Elizabethan country house located in Wollaton Park, Nottingham, England. It was comissioned in 1580 by Sir Francis Willoughby who had become rich through coalmining. The house is believed to have been designed by Robert Smythson, the same man who made Longleat House. Wollaton Hall is now home to the Nottingham Natural History Museum, with Nottingham Industrial Museum in the out-buildings. The surrounding parkland has a herd of deer, and is regularly used for large-scale outdoor events such as rock concerts, sporting events and festivals.

Château de Chambord

The Château de Chambord is one of the most famous châteaux of the Loire Valley due to its very distinctive French Renaissance style, as well as its size. It was built between 1519 and 1547 to serve as a hunting lodge for king Francis I. There is some doubt over who made the original design of the building, but it is usually attributed to Domenico da Cortona, allthough Leonardo da Vinci may also have been involved. The actual construction of the building was overseen by Pierre Nepveu, who also made changes to its design.

Château de Villandry

The Château de Villandry is another famous château of the Loire Valley, known especially for its beautiful gardens. The château, built by Jean Le Breton in the 16th century, was constructed around an old 14th-century keep where King Philip II of France once met Richard I of England to discuss peace. The gardens that we see today were recreated by Joachim Carvallo, who purchased the property in 1906.

Güstrow Palace

Güstrow Palace in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern in northern Germany was built in 1558 by Ulrich, duke of Mecklenburg. The palace was designed by the Italian architecht Franciscus Pahr who had also worked in Silesia and Sweden where he among other things refurbished Uppsala Castle. Güstrow Palace was modernized in 1657 by duke Gustav Adolf of Güstrow. He employed the dutch architecht Charles Philippe Dieussart who added a baroque gatehouse and a palace bridge.

El Escorial

The Royal Site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial, commonly known simply as El Escorial was built by king Philip II of Spain to be a monument to Spain's role as a center of the Christian world. It is situated at the foot of Mt. Abantos in the Sierra de Guadarrama near Madrid and functioned as a monastery, basilica, royal palace, pantheon, library, museum, university and hospital. The design of the building was made by Philip in collaboration with the Spanish architecht Juan Bautista de Toledo who had previously worked on the St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Construction began on 23 April 1563 and was overseen by Toledo until his death in 1567 when his apprentice, Juan de Herrera, took over. The building was completed in 1584, taking less than 21 years to construct. El Escorial now serves as a monastery of the Order of Saint Augustine as well as a boarding school and popular tourist attraction.

Palmanova

Palmanova is a renaissance town in northern Italy. It was founded in 1593 to celebrate the twenty-second anniversary of Venice’s victory against the Ottomans, and was also supposed to protect the Italian peninsula from further Ottoman attacks. Palmanova was meant to be a utopia, where everything is ideal. The design of the town and the buildings was geometrically perfect, and each part of the town, and each person had a particular purpose. Unfortunately though, the government had trouble finding people who wanted to live there, so much so infact, that they in 1622 resorted to releasing prisoners and giving them land in the town. In the end, they succeded in creating a strong fortress, and a beautiful town.

La Casa de Pilatos (Pilate's House) is an andalusian palace in Seville. The building is a mixture of Renaisance Italian and Mudéjar Spanish styles. It is considered the prototype of the Andalusian palace.

It's fortunate that so much from that era survived two world wars plus all the other conflicts on the continent since then. Nothing's built like that anymore..
