Portuguese Architecture

Portuguese Architecture is the style of architecture that has developed in Portugal over the centuries, influenced by the country’s location, maritime history, and various artistic movements. Manueline and Pombaline architecture are two prominent styles, with the former featuring intricate decoration and nautical motifs and the latter emphasizing a rational and functional approach. Portuguese architecture also reflects the influence of other styles, including Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Modernism, and has produced notable architects such as Álvaro Siza Vieira and Eduardo Souto de Moura.
