The old town hall of Bremen (Germany) was built in the Gothic style in the early 15th century, after Bremen joined the Hanseatic League. The building was renovated in the so-called Weser Renaissance style in the early 17th century.

Crichton Castle (Scotland). The castle's most distinctive feature is its Italian-influenced courtyard façade, which forms part of the north range. Francis Stewart, the designer, had travelled to Italy, and was inspired by new styles and technology in buildings there, particularly the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara.

Queen Anna’s Summer house (called Belvedere), Prague (Czech Republic). It was built after a project and model of an Italian builder and stonemason Paolo della Stella in a style of Italian Renaissance by the builder Giovanni Spatio, who was succeeded by G. Maria del Pambio. Fire of the castle in 1541 interrupted the construction, which continued in the years 1548 - 1552 under the command of Paolo della Stella.

The Cathedral of the Archangel is located in Cathedral Squares of the Moscow Kremlin. It was constructed between 1505 and 1508 under the supervision of an Italian architect Aloisio the New on the spot of an older cathedral, built in 1333.
Compared with the other two major Kremlin cathedrals, the Archangel Cathedral is substantially different in style, despite maintaining a traditional layout. The exterior ornamentation its characteristic semi-circular niches with shell-shaped ornaments and gateways with arc-shaped frames made of white limestone, which are coated with paint and decorated with floral ornaments point to the Italian Renaissance influence.

The Sponza Palace is a 16th-century palace in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Its name is derived from the Latin word "spongia", the spot where rainwater was collected.
The rectangular building with an inner courtyard was built in a mixed Gothic and Renaissance style between 1516 and 1522.

Almería, actually. In Granada (but in the same geographical region, the steppic eastern-Andalusian plateau) there's its brother castle, the one in La Calahorra (begun in 1500, while the one in Vélez Blanco was begun in 1506), which I'm sure you know.

The thread takes a few pages and still have not left some jewelry of the European Renaissance


The Château de Chenonceau is a French chateau panning the River Cher It is one of the best-known chateaux of the Loire valley.
The current château was built in 1514–1522 on the foundations of an old mill and was later extended to span the river. The bridge over the river was built (1556-1559) to designs by the French Renaissance architect Philibert de l'Orme and the gallery on the bridge (1570–1576) to designs by Jean Bullant.
