Spanish Architectural Styles are built all around the world and is likely to be one of the first European styles of architecture used in the Americas. Some consider this style to be one of the most beautiful styles for houses. With the settlement of St. Augustine, Florida in 1565 and later in southern California and the southwestern part of the United States, Spanish house styles have had a huge influence on the American house all across the United States. They have given us the Spanish Colonial style, Mission style, Revival style, Monterey style, and the Hacienda style among others. They remain very popular in a number of regions across the country.
