It's a lovely building, and nicely restored. .. but I wonder if the impetus to restore into a simplified, older fashion had a financial incentive...

And I wonder how it was actually done. Was anything left of the 17th century facade under the late-19th century additions? Was the frontage pulled down and then rebuilt?

The restoration of the ancient facade was the first step of a grand plan to restore all the old Portuguese colonial district of the city, that was the capital of the country during the Portuguese administration!

Yes it resembles the Buenos Aires cabildo! I didn't know that this one went through to the same process.

With the exception of the bell tower, that was rebuilt, the original facade, including the sandstone archway, was intact behind the plaster of the later one. When that plaster was decapped everything old came to the light. It was in fact a rescue, not a fake reconstruction. I just regret that the iron and bronze sculptures and other elements of the XIX century were just casted away...

Buenos Aires Cabildo

XVIII century:



early, mid XIX:



late XIX:



early XX:



1940:



a couple years ago:



today:



how it would look the original cabildo with present buildings:



both, for aesthetic, architectural reasons and national identity I prefer it when italianish with the big tower.

the only value it has as original is historical.

Very nice pictures of that Cabildo! Amazing how BA loked liked Brazilian colonial cities in the XVIII century. The first time I went there it looked to me a bit incongruent with the entour. The latter XIX century version was very imposing indeed. Anyway it is a good remain of colonial BA. Very good informations! I love old city pictures! Thank you!

I knew the castle at Aschaffenburg had been badly damaged in WW2 but had no idea that it was so completely wrecked. The rebuilding was fantastic. Thank god they actually bothered restoring it instead of just bulldozing the ruins. It's an incredibly beautiful building.

How did Germany afford to reconstruct these places?

The reconstructed Frauenkirche features stones of the WWII destroyed church.
Those turned black of course. It's that visible by purpose.

Besides, the Elbe sandstone has the character of turning black rather fast, without pollution in the air. That's something specific for the region. I like how they implemented it.
