Arenberg Castle (Belgium)
Antoon van Croy demolished the medieval castle and started works to build the current château in 1455 on the site, of which he destroyed all but one tower. Willen van Croy completed the works on the château in 1515, and founded a monastery on the château grounds. The architectural style is in large part traditionally Flemish, with sandstone window frames and brick walls and has elements of Gothic and Renaissance architecture.

Monastery of San Agustin de Acolman (México)
Declared a national monument in 1933, the monastery of San Agustín was built between 1539 and 1580 with most of the work being done after 1550. The crown of battlements, the single bell tower, the open chapel and the Plateresque facade identify the complex as a classic 16th century religious construction.

Since the end of the 16th century and in the seventeenth century the theater takes place in different spaces. The theater has become a fixed space in the Renaissance with the great projects of Serlio, Palladio and Scamozzi.
In England and Spain the stage space appears in the courtyards of buildings that will lead to the Elizabethan theaters and the corrals of comedies.

The Vicenza Olympic Theater (Italy) is a theater designed by the Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio in 1580. It is the first roofed theater building in modern history, as well as being the first closed theater in the world.

The Teatro all'antica ("Theater in the style of the ancients") is a theatre in Sabbioneta, northern Italy; it was the first free-standing, purpose-built theater in the modern world. The Teatro all'antica is the second-oldest surviving indoor theater in the world (after the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza) and was constructed in 1588 and 1590 by the celebrated Vicentine architect Vincenzo Scamozzi under a commission from Duke Vespasiano I Gonzaga, as part of Gonzaga's effort to turn his tiny Ducal seat into an idealized classical city.

The Globe Theatre was a theatre in London associated with William Shakespeare. It was built in 1599 by Shakespeare's playing company and was destroyed by fire on 29 June 1613.
A modern reconstruction of the Globe, named "Shakespeare's Globe", opened in 1997 approximately 230 m from the site of the original theatre.







The Corral de Comedias de Almagro (Spain) is the only example of theater of this type preserved in its integrity; Which took place both in the Spain of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and in England of the Elizabethan theater.

The Fuggerei in Augsburg (Bavaria, Germany) is the world's oldest social housing complex still in use. It is a walled enclave within the city. It takes its name from the Fugger family and was founded in 1516 as a place where the needy citizens of Augsburg could be housed. By 1523, 52 houses had been built, and in the coming years the area expanded with various streets, small squares and a church.
The Fugger family, alongside the Welser family, controlled much of the European economy in the sixteenth century and accumulated enormous wealth. The Fuggers held almost a monopoly on European copper market.
This banking family replaced the Medici family, who influenced all of Europe during the Renaissance. They were closely affiliated with the House of Habsburg whose rise to world power they financed.

The Cappella Colleoni is a church and mausoleum in Bergamo in northern Italy. It was built between 1472 and 1476 as the personal shrine for the condottiere Bartolomeo Colleoni. The site chosen was that of the sacristy of the nearby church of Santa Maria Maggiore, which was demolished by Colleoni's soldiers.
The design was entrusted to Giovanni Antonio Amadeo , whose plan respected the style of the church, as can be seen from the octagonal tambour of the dome and in the lantern cusp, as well as in the use of polychrome marbles.

The Cathedral of Malaga (Spain) is considered one of the most valuable Renaissance jewels of Andalusia.
Its construction process began in 1528. The original traces, of Gothic style, led to a Renaissance project whose plans included Diego de Siloé and Andrés de Vandelvira. The cathedral is a synthesis of architectural styles between which the Renaissance prevails over the first Gothic of the old factory and some decorative Baroque elements.

The convent of Las Dueñas is a Dominican convent located in the city of Salamanca, Spain. It was founded in 1419 in the rooms of the Mudejar palace at the end of the 14th century, of which some remains are preserved
In 1533 the temple and the cloister were built.
On the outside of the church, of great sobriety, the plateresque cover stands out.
The interest of the whole convent is centered on the magnificent plateresque cloister, built in 1533. The capitals are of inexhaustible fantasy and variety and in the spandrels were carved monsters and grotesques.
