A small correction, this palace is of transition of Gothic to the Renaissance, with majority of Renaissance elements

The Palace of Cogolludo is the one that is considered the first Renaissance palace outside italy, it is also in the province of Guadalajara

Fernand Braudel states that Antwerp became "the centre of the entire international economy, something Bruges had never been even at its height."Antwerp was the richest city in Europe in XVI century and was the main port along with Seville and Lisbon.

Antwerp City Hall, 1561-1565

It was built in 1531.
The building burned down in 1858, but was reconstructed at the end of the 19th century.

Is it not possible to re-size the images? I still use desktops and I think it is really tiring to see all this mega-sized pictures in threads. Not to mention that I'm not really able to see the whole buildings you post either as I only see the left edge of the pictures unless I scroll.

Edit: Thank you!

That's absolutely amazing. Looks like a fantasy medieval city in real life, but at the same time the work on the wood, stone and paintings make it look authentic and gives it character.

The Rosenkrantz Tower, part of Bergenhus fortress in Bergen, Norway. The oldest part of the building dates from aroun 1270, but the current look of the building dates from the 1560s when the building was redesigned and enlarged in a renaissance style under the watch of Erik Ottesen Rosenkrantz (who have also given the building its name). It is usually considered to be main monument from the renaissance in Norway.

The Renaissance is certainly one of the greatest periods for architecture.

Palazzo Massimo alle Colonne, Rome, Italy. It was designed by Baldassarre Peruzzi and constructed between 1532 and 1536. It is notable for having a rather unusual curved facade.

It is connected with the fresco-ed renaissance facade of Palazzetto Massimi at the other side of the block.
