The Alamo (Mission of San Antonio de Valero), general view
Architecture in what was once New Spain (the Spanish colonies in the New World that extended from South America to California) was based on the Baroque (c1600-1750) style in Spain. Key elements of that are evident in the Alamo: the curvilinear gable, elaborately carved, twisting columns, an ornately carved door, and the area around the doors and niches that served to display sculpture.
