Abstract

The Barrocco Mestizo features formal wealth and knowledge of various origins. Its European origin is clear; however, its influences and evolution are not. This paper studies the medieval and classic influences in the Barroco Mestizo architecture. Specifically, it surveys the facades of the Churches of the Merced, San Francisco, the Company, Santo Domingo, San Augustine, and the Third Order. The facades of these churches are featured by its elaborate iconography.
