Hearst Castle: Examples of Spanish Architecture
Spanish architecture incorporates many different sub-styles within its
umbrella: Mission Revival, Spanish Colonial, Spanish Revival,
Mediterranean Revival and Spanish Eclectic. Spanish style originated in Florida
and California -- areas that were then-Spanish territories or had
strong Spanish influences. Built in 1919, the Hearst Castle is Spanish
Revival. It was donated to the state of California in 1957, at which
point the estate and its considerable collection of art and antiques
became open for public tours.
