Architecture Pictures

Architecture a very interesting part of our travel photography, especially in Europe we have discovered some amazing old and modern architecture.

We have seen many different styles of architecture on our tours through different countries of the world. Particularly in some parts of Europe, the architecture we've seen dates back to the 9th or 10th century ... even earlier. Some towns and buildings have even been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites because of their architectural design and the importance of when it was implemented - such as in the towns of Ubeda and Baeza in southern Spain.

There are so many different architectural styles that it is almost impossible for us to name them all.
Here are just a few:

  • Art Deco
  • Colonial
  • Early Renaissance
  • Gothic
  • Islamic
  • Medieval
  • Moorish
  • Spanish-Mission
  • Jugendstil

We hope you enjoy our pictures of architecture.
