Spanish Colonial Revival is an architectural movement based on the original Spanish Colonial architecture movement that was born from the Spanish colonization of the Americas. It borrows from the history of Spanish architecture including Moorish, Gothic, Byzantine, and Gothic influences.
Spanish Colonial Revival architecture was one of the most dominant architectural styles in San Diego in the 1920s following the Panama-California Exposition that was held there in 1915. It is also known as Spanish Eclectic architecture.
This style is most commonly identifiable through thick stucco or adobe walls, red clay (terracotta) roof tiles, enclosed courtyards with water features, wrought iron elements, arched doorways, curved edge walls, few and small windows, little or no decoration, heavy carved wooden doors with metal accents, colorful tile work, stone, tile, and cobbled floors, and exposed wood beams.
