Gothic Architecture

Gothic Architecture was quite common in Europe during the Medieval periods.

It derived from the branch of architecture known as Romanesque Architecture. A lot of buildings in Europe, especially the United Kingdom are a reflection of this architectural style.

Most of these buildings were built in the 12th , 16th and 18th centuries and include a large number of cathedrals, palaces and other buildings of note. The truth is that the term Gothic Architecture in actual fact has nothing to do with the Goths.

The term Gothic in this case was used to refer to something babaric and strange. At the time that the architectural structures were conceived, the art was seen as unrefined. It was only much later that this impression changed..
