The Church and Monastery of St. Francisco, Quito (Ecuador), is a 16th-century (1534-1605) catholic complex. The imposing structure has the distinction of being the largest architectural ensemble among the historical structures of colonial Latin America and for this reason is sometimes known as "El Escorial of the New World".









The facade of the main Church (1581) reflects, for the first time in South America, Mannerist elements (influenced by Vignola and Serlio). The severity of the building's Renaissance and Mannerist exterior contrasts with the inner decoration of the Church (Mudéjar and Baroque, 17-18 centuries).





Cloister (1605)

As I read in the manual of Ramón Gutierrez, of the Cátedra publisher, the atrium with the stairs is original of the sixteenth century and is inspired
in a theoretical design of Bramante

Poznań Town Hall (Poland). The town hall was originally built in the late 13th century following the founding of the medieval city in 1253; it was rebuilt in roughly its present-day form, in mannerist style, with an ornate loggia, by Giovanni Battista di Quadro in 1550–1560.

The Litomyšl palace (Czech Republic) is a building with archery inspired by the Italian Renaissance style, which was adopted and extensively developed in Central Europe during the 16th century. The magnificence of its design and ornamentation is also characteristic of the elements of late Baroque-classic style that were added in the eighteenth century.

The Cathedral of St James in Šibenik (Croatia) (1431-1535), is the most important architectural monument of the Reaissance in the entire country. The three architects who succeeded one another in the construction of the Cathedral - Francesco di Giacomo, Georgius Mathei Dalmaticus and Niccolò di Giovanni Fiorentino - developed a structure built entirely from stone and using unique construction techniques for the vaulting and the dome of the Cathedral. The form and the decorative elements of the Cathedral, such as a remarkable frieze decorated with 71 sculptured faces of men, women, and children, also illustrate the successful fusion of Gothic and Renaissance art.

Jerónimos Monastery












Belém Tower







Church of Nossa Senhora da Conceição







Jerónimos Monastery has always fascinated me - one of the most amazing and remarkable buildings in Europe with it's rich mixture of styles yet all blending so well. Great photos!

This is very interesting, the facade shows the transition from Renaissance to Baroque at the same time that this shift was happening in Italy too, which implies that the colonies were not lagging behind the main cultural centres of Europe. Not only that but I'd say that the design is quite original.

The Hall of Antiquities (Antiquarium) in Munich, built between 1568-1571 for the antique collection of Duke Alvert V (1550–1579) by Wilhelm Egkl and Jacobo Strada, is the largest Renaissance hall north of the Alps. It was remodelled into a banqueting hall by Friedrich Sustris in 1586-1600.

The Kraków Cloth Hall dates to the Renaissance (1559) and is one of the city's most recognizable icons.

The Château d'Écouen is a historic chateau in the city of Écouen, north of Paris, France, which today houses the Musée national de la Renaissance (National Museum of the Renaissance).
The château was built between 1538 and 1550 by the architect Jean Bullant.

The Colegio de San Gregorio is an building located in the city of Valladolid, Spain, decorated with a mixture of styles: Late Gothic and Renaissance, which give it an eclectic style of great detail.
It was formerly a college and now is housing the National Museum of Sculpture. The axis of the collections is the Renaissance and baroque sculpture, executed mostly in the Central Spain, and also in other regions historically connected to Spain (Italy, Flanders, Southern America).

TheTudor architectural style is the final development of Medieval architecture in England, during the Tudor period (1485–1603) and even beyond, and also the tentative introduction of Renaissance architecture to England. It is generally not used to refer to the whole period of the Tudor dinasty (1485-1603), but in prestige buildings to the period roughly between 1500 and 1560. It followed the Late Gothic Perpendicular style and was superseded by Elizabethan architecture.
