Many Buenos Aires monuments belong to this architectural movement developed in some Western countries between the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 20th century.
It is an architectural trend characterized by the recovery of the stylistic models from the past. In fact, from the end of the 17th century, eclectic architects started to reuse and mix historic styles that so far had been rejected due to their free interpretation of the classic repertoire.
Thus, between the last third of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, the following styles were applied in several Western monuments: the Neo-Baroque style, inspired in the baroque architecture from the 17th and 18th centuries or the Neo-Gothic style, inspired in the medieval gothic.
This trend, used by the Fine-Art style, made many monuments to look like heterogeneous very difficult to classify.
