20 buildings of baroque architecture!

The baroque era begins at the beginning of the 18th century. What does the term "baroque" actually mean? Its origins are related to the Portuguese language: barocco denotes an irregularly shaped pearl (backgrounds to the epoch). Later, one begins to associate the word with terms such as "boastful" and "extraordinary." Baroque is indeed characterized by lavish splendor. At first it spread in the Catholic Europe countries, with the time it prevailed also in Protestant countries.

The Baroque style partly takes on the specific form elements of the Renaissance. He "unfolds" Renaissance art clearly articulated and completes the picture of calm and unity. But the Baroque era is different from the Renaissance. All elements of Renaissance are portrayed in baroque style in a transcendent manner. In addition, Baroque is characterized by the pursuit of wealth, which can be noticed in architecture, painting and sculpture.

Painting. Sculptures. Lighting effects. All three will be at the Baroque architecture highly valued and frequently used, because they create a sumptuous, splendid Gesamtkunstwerk. In addition there are rich ornaments as jewelery, unique Fensterbekrönungen, cupolas and generous columns groups.

The architecture is a particularly important aspect of the Baroque era. In the era of this era, more than 50 churches, as well as squares and fountains, were built in Rome. Actually, the whole cityscape was redesigned. The two architects Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromoni exerted a very strong influence at that time:
