522 ES - Renaissance Monumental Ensembles of Úbeda and Baeza (2003)

Brief Description

"The urban morphology of the two small cities of Úbeda and Baeza in southern Spain dates back to the Moorish 9th century and to the Reconquista in the 13th century. An important development took place in the 16th century, when the cities were subject to renovation along the lines of the emerging Renaissance. This planning intervention was part of the introduction into Spain of new humanistic ideas from Italy, which went on to have a great influence on the architecture of Latin America."

"在西班牙南部坐落着两个小城——乌韦达和巴埃萨,对于当地城市形态学的研究可以追溯到公元9世 纪摩尔人统治时期以及公元13世纪的收复领土时期。到了公元16世纪,随着文艺复兴运动的发展,当地也出现了文艺复兴的形势,使这两个小城得到了重大发 展。这种有计划的影响其实就是新人文主义思想从意大利被介绍到了西班牙,这一思想后来从西班牙带到了拉丁美洲,对那里的建筑一直产生着巨大影响。"
