→Spread of the Baroque
Although one can say already some churches in Italy, particularly Rome, in the 1580s began to display a new Baroque style, most of the Baroque in the late 16th century was confined to Italy. It only really began to spread in the early 1600s, when Spain began to create its own Baroque churches, such as the San Isidro Chapel in Madrid. The baroque soon began to change and adapt to local styles as it spread further still. In France, the Classical style was a form of baroque popularised by Louis XIV and XV, where architecture was far more geometric and maintaining simpler forms that were symmetrical being of great focus. The Palace of Versailles built in the 1680s exemplifies the baroque style used in French architecture.
