ARCHITECTURAL STYLES

Characteristic Features:
The Romanesque style is the first of the above-stated styles, which appeared in the arts. Romanesque (Latin romanus — Rome) is the style of Western European art in the early Middle Ages (X — XIII centuries).
This style is the revival of the architectural traditions of ancient Rome and, as a result, got its name from the word "Roma" Latin — Rome! Aside from massive stone walls, semicircular arches, cylindrical or cross arches, brevity and simplicity, and the sense of stability and immovability have become the main features of the Romanesque style. Powerful columns were sometimes replaced with powerful cross-shaped or octagonal columns.
The Romanesque capitals had simple geometric shapes; they were often decorated with relief carvings. The era of this style creates a special sense of being in-touch with the everlasting history, a sense of the importance of the world and the desire to show not only the beauty of the world, but the true beauty of the spirit.
