"The first level, with short..." Colonial Architecture Tip by la_beba

 
 

Favorite thing: The first level, with short and flat columns, shown a consciousness to construct with earthquakes in mind. It was the second floor, with wood and tile roofs, which suffered the most damage during the earthquake of 1751 and 1773.
